Mini-album Mania!

I love making mini-albums because I get to use up leftover paper (which I know we all have), and because they can be quick and easy to make. Since space is limited, embellishments can be kept to a minimum. Cutting shapes from leftover paper works great for this and simple things like rhinestones and buttons are a perfect complement. It's also a good idea to add in a few premade journal cards since journaling in a mini-album can be a challenge. Sometimes I like to print my pictures first but oftentimes I'm not that organized so just leave enough space for a small photo (or two) to fit. Now the only thing left to do is print some wallets (see my previous post here on how to make your own wallet photos).

Here are some examples to get you started:
All of these albums were $1 at Michaels, but I've also seen cheap ones at Target too!



This album would be great for a kid who loves to swim, a trip to the aquarium, or about fishing!
