Mini Christmas Photo Album

 Christmas Ornaments Mini Album from Marty's Musings

While your tree is still up, I have a great project that I don’t want you to miss!

I want to show you how to create an 8×8 mini Christmas photo album to tell the stories of your meaningful family Christmas ornaments.

This project couldn’t be easier to put together. 

Step One: Decide what size album you want to use. I chose an 8×8 red top loading mini album.

Step Two: Take pictures of the ornaments that are the most special and full of family history and memories.

Step Three:  Use 8×8 (or whatever size you chose) cardstock as the base for the photos.

Step Four:  Cut 1″ strips of patterned Christmas paper and glue on outer edges of cardstock.

Step Seven: Add extra embellishments if desired.

Step Eight: Display your sweet album each year for your family to enjoy and celebrate!

I used my Cricut diecutting machine to make the vinyl title for the front.

This album can be “fancied up” if you are a scrapbooker like me and want to use some of you stash to add some pizzazz to each page. Or keep it simple like I did while still recording your family memories.

Do you have a collection? Photograph and write about it so your family will know its origins and meaning. 

It’s been a busy season already, full of Christmas projects and goodies. Have you seen the rest of our home all decked out for the holidays?
