I have been hard at work making Christmas gifts to share with you!
This evening’s easy Christmas gift is an altered photo album. Who doesn’t need a photo album? Think: Mothers, Daughters, Grandmothers, Friends, Hair Dressers, Cleaning Ladies, UPS Delivery Drivers, pastors, the list could go on forever and ever. Just adapt your design to your desired recipient.
This is one I made for a friend with 2 sons.
(It’s not wrinkly, that’s the glare of the plastic cover.) I bought a 4×6 photo album at Target. Get the kind with the paper design in the front which can be removed. All I did was cut my background paper to the size of that already provided. (Actually, I cut it just a smidge smaller because I knew I would be using dimensional embellishments so I wanted to be sure the new cover would fit in the album. Then I just decorated the background paper. I finished off the album with a piece of jute tied around the spine. I think that little touch really brings the whole design together.
There you have it! An easy boutique-quality Christmas gift that you can make yourself!
