Little photo books are so handy. They can be special keepsakes you can carry in your handbag or keep in a desk drawer at work. Sometimes it isn't convenient to display framed photographs at work, so a tiny album is a great solution.

How to Create Mini Scrapbook Albums

You can purchase small albums that are 2"x3" in size or larger. They are often constructed with pocket pages so are easy to fill up with little photos and embellishments. You can easily create one with Project Life kits too and you can buy smaller albums and pocket pages in this range. See some examples at SusanSalutations. There is a Project Life category in the shop.

But with a little extra effort, you can make a unique one out of chipboard and tie it together with a book binding ring or two or three.

Or you can make your own unique one out of little paper bags and bind it with ordinary cardstock and paper binding pins.

Another idea is to look for evenly sized objects like drink coasters or an old pack of cards to decorate. Bind them together with a single bookbinding ring or several rings if so desired. You could even bind them with yarn or twine or other similar materials like thin nylon surfboard rope. There are also binding machines available in scrapbook supply shops.

Try different shapes for your pages. Old CDs make good mini album pages, and you can punch holes through them with a Crop-a-dile.

What about some themes for your Mini Scrapbook Albums?

  • If you have a good relationship with your Mother-In-Law, a lovely idea is to make a special little gift for her showing how you and your husband are happy together.
