Inspired by my sweet friend, Traci Thorson's Christmas Card Mini Album last year, I added my own twist to her inspiration.
I will be creating these each year from cards, letters and photos received. Then adding small journaling to them to personalize and remember those special people in our lives.
Here is a list of supplies needed to create your very own...
The cover of my album is the Christmas Card that I sent out. I cut the card at the seam and added some fun Christmas embellishments. Then I glued it together for the cover and first page of my mini album and punched holes to bind.
The fun part is putting in all the of the beautiful Christmas Cards together and creating a book.
How about adding your Christmas Tree tag to remember your trip?
Adhere smaller cards into the inside of larger cards and them embellish the white space with stickers, buttons and embellishments.
Love those family Christmas photographs cards? I know I do!
Adhere it to the back of a card and add some extra embellishments.
I just love receiving the Christmas letters. Reading them and getting caught up with family and friends is a real blessing. I punched holes in a gift bag and added embellishments and stickers. I then tucked all of those precious letters inside to enjoy for years to come.
If you don't have a card that quite fits - trim it down and cut out the sentiment. Add some twine and small embellishment.
Adding a small card to a larger card, then embellishing it makes each page a delight to look at.
Open the card and inside is a picture and a precious family letter preserved...
I am enjoying my album. Rereading, reminiscing and feeling so blessed to have all these special people in our lives.
I hope that these little albums will become a treasure traditions for many years to come.
I would love to see what you create with your Christmas cards... Won't you share?
Wishing you a creative day, sweet friends.
