Mini Album ~ Brag Book for Grandma

I Love the idea of recycling! You can do so much to reduce household trash. I have started saving the cardboard boxes to use for creating projects and this is the first one -:

I made this little mini album for a friend’s birthday. The idea was for her to put all her photos of her Grandkids in the same place…and of cause to ‘brag’ with them to the other grandma’s….

Brag Book for Grandma

I used,recycled or ‘Up-cycled a cereal box for the covers of the little book…


Cut in halve,I could make two mini albums…

First I covered the ‘covers’ with white card stock  (it made it a little more sturdy) and then I covered it with a chosen sheet of paper.

Next up,I made the pages…Instead of making ‘hinges’ I just scored and folded the paper at 1/2″ – the little book was to be light and not too bulky.

With the pages (5) all in,I am ready to decorate…I am using the papers from Colorbøk ~ I have had this paper in my stash for a long time and it was time to use it…

Colorbøk “Fresh Linen”

After some planning and cutting and preparing my papers I am ready to get busy playing….Page 1 ~ with a pocket on the (L) with place for a tag and some photos. The (R) side folds open for more photos…

Page 2 ~  (L) with a pocket in the middle that flips open to the side….

Page 3 ~ With pages tabs that flips up and down Page 3 ~ fully open

Page 4 (L) ~ with a pocket the flips open…

Page 5 ~ the (R) side of the page pulls out….Page 5 ~ Pulled out….
