In this post:

  • I’ll tell you about easy little mini albums you can create from one sheet of paper (or even a digital version)
  • Show you a video on how to create one (even though it is for a different season, it still goes together the same way!)
  • Offer you printed directions and/or a digital layered PSD file

Let’s get started!

Here at Artful Adventures, I like to offer you ideas to kick it up a notch – without a lot of hassle!  Here is a special do-it-yourself kind of gift that lends itself well to any number of occasions.  By taking just one 12×12 inch sheet of double-sided paper, or card stock, you can easily create a special little mini-album. Just a few basic touches will make it special, but you can add whatever you’d like.  In other words, how simple or fancy you make it is all up to you!  You can add pictures, quotes, stickers, fibers, beads, buttons…..  there are endless possibilites.

Here is a look at a little mini album made from one sheet of paper.

Please visit each site on the hop to see the special deal they are offering. There is such a diversity of creative things any mother would love to receive in honor of Mother’s Day. Note: If you joined us somewhere along the way, please start HERE so you don’t miss a thing!

    I have to be honest when I first saw your tutorial on this my little one actually made a mini album with me. This is a great giveaway Kristie and I think I should make some more of these!

    • Kristie Sloan

      Beth, they really are fun and easy! The pictures I used in the PDF are very basic because I want everyone to use what they have and truly make it their own!

  • Heather D

    Love this little album! A piece of washi tape would be a great way to finish off the spine. I think I need to make a few of these!

    • Kristie Sloan

      Heather, THAT is a perfect idea! I love it! Thanks for sharing that with us.

  • Patricia Vickers

    Cannot wait to get home and follow your directions. My granddaughter will love the idea of making an album for my daughter for Mothers Day. Especially if it only uses one or two sheets of paper. Thanks

    • Kristie Sloan

      Patricia, I hope you will take a picture of it and share it over in our FaceBook group!
