Whimsical Photobook

Plain photo albums are boring! Here’s a simple way to create a custom brag book for your favorite photos.

It's also a terrific way to feature photos from a party, trip, or event!

Instructions –

1. Start with a plain album (available at most craft stores, or DIY by binding squares of kraft cardstock).

2. Trim strips of your favorite patterned papers & cardstocks. You can choose any width – for this project, I used 1 inch strips.

3. Use Fiskars Border punches to customize some of the paper strips.

4. Layer on cover of album, allowing strips to overlap – don’t worry about keeping the center neat, because it will eventually be covered.

5. Trim excess paper around edges of cover. Use sandpaper or a small file to smooth edges.

6. I used the Fuse Creativity System¨ to create this butterfly stamp embellishment as a beautiful accent for my photobook.

7. Use foam adhesive to adhere embellishment to cover8. Add album title and ribbon.
