Have a Pocket-Sized Celebration With These DIY Mini Albums

Mini albums may be small, but they sure are mighty — mighty with your beloved photos and memories, that is! These quick, easy-to-do scrapbooking projects can be completed in one sitting and are the perfect way to showcase your special stories, from timely DIY holiday mini albums to showcasing precious baby moments! CM Japan Advisors Yuuki Miyata and Yumi Iizuka came up with these clever DIY mini albums that can turn all sorts of photos into a beautiful display — check them out!

To create this project you will need:

Step 1: Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 12″ x 6″. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade, score in the middle at 6″.

Step 2: Cut a different piece of cardstock to measure 12″ x 1-1/2″. Score at 9″, 6″ and 3″. Fold up as shown in the photo above. Adhere this strip to the base by just placing adhesive on the ends.

Step 3: Add any size photos to the album as desired — a 5″ x 4″ is a great start.

Step 4: Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 12″ x 1/4″. Then, cut into 1″ to 1-1/2″ pieces. Add embellishments or gems to the ends and adhere to the pop-out strip at the top.

Step 5: Using the Alphabet Stamp Kit System, stamp out your desired title. Cut into tiles and add to the top of the mini album.

Step 6:  Add embellishments and stickers and journal as desired.

  1. THESE ideas are AWESOME!!! I’ve been looking for something special to give the grandchildren for their christmas cards. THANK you very much!!! Hello From Florida!

  2. I have a new grandbaby coming in January and I’m thinking this would make a great “brag book” for my daughter! Maybe use peek-a-boo pockets to include more photos!
