Today I am showing you my Christmas Mini Albums I made to give as gifts.  I love making gifts!!


I started out with 4 pieces of chipboard per album.  I cut them to 5x7.

I used paper from Chrismas paper pads I found at Hobby Lobby.  I like that the paper coordinates.  I trimmed 4 pieces of paper so I had 2 of each kind for my album.

I found this title in the Silhouette Store and cut it out of black vinyl.  I adhered it to the front of each album.


I trimmed photo mats 6.25 x 4.25.

Christmas photos are generally busy and bright, so I wanted a simple album that would not compete with the photos.




On the back, I put santa and his reindeer, also from the silhouette store.

I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in each page and secured with binder rings.  I tied some coordinating ribbon on the rings.

I made each album a little different.  I can't wait to see what memories are placed inside!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
