Scrapbook Album Ideas to Try

by Megan Hoeppner

Giving creative, stand-out gift albums is easy with these unexpected and creative mini-album ideas:

  1. Turn large office tags into the pages of an album by grouping them together with a jump ring.
  2. Visit an antique store and look for vintage albums or old 45 record holders. These album covers make unique mini albums and offer great creative potential.
  3. Fill a two-up photo album with scrapbooked bits for a fun photo-album approach to memory keeping. You can often find these at dollar stores.
  4. Cut up and bind pieces cut from cereal boxes for a colorful album idea.
  5. Cover the pages of an old desk calendar with photos and journaling for an awesome up-cycled idea!
  6. Glue together the ends of small paper sacks and fill the sacks with your memories.
  7. Cut bitty pages from cardstock and use them to fill up a small jewelry box (necklace boxes work well).
