A Cute Mini Album Idea

You know how you walk through stores and think, "How can I use this in scrapping?" Well, Staples was my new best friend!

I saw the badge holders and thought, "Aha, this would work." I bought a package of 10 for just under $6.00. I chose the horizontal ones rather than the vertical ones.

The next thing was to use scrap paper from my scrap box. I went through my old stickers and pulled anything that might be useful. Lastly, I used fibers to dress it up. I know, I know - fibers? Why not ribbon? Well, I just like the festive look of the fibers.

Think of the possibilities for this. You could decorate it and slip a gift card or two inside to give as a gift. It would have made a great stocking stuffer for Christmas, too (thanks, Morgan). It would also make a great brag book for Grandma. It's just small enough to be perfect for those school photos that come in the smaller sizes.

That's too cute! I had a similar idea for a mini book made out of clear plastic luggage tags.
