Hello everyone! One of the crafty projects I treasure the most is a purse-sized mini album that I made many years ago. It features photos of my two girls when they were just wee little humans. The pages of this album fold up into a small holder that snaps shut and is tiny enough to fit in a small purse pocket. Throughout the years I’ve moved it from purse to purse so it’s always been with me wherever I go. Now that my girls are teenagers, I figured it was time to make an updated version.
My “album” is housed in a clear plastic case that’s just a little bigger than a business card holder. I purchased a bunch of these cases at a scrapbook convention over a decade ago, but I’m sure you can find a regular business card holder that would work just as well for this purpose. I tied it up with a pretty bow.
Here is the cover view.
It folds out accordion style to reveal photos of my girls. I kept the embellishments pretty simple since there isn’t a lot of room for lumpy, bumpy accents.
Whenever I want to show someone pictures of my girls, I can quickly grab my purse mini and let it unfold!
Thanks for joining me today! Are you ready for the release of our new spring issue on Friday? Mark your calendars!
