Gift Photo Album
This idea is very inexpensive and perfect for a teacher, co-worker or as a stocking stuffer this Christmas! Insert pre-cut journal cards into the sleeves inside of the album and you have your own December Daily style mini album.
I've taken a small 4 X 6 photo album from a dollar store. The cover has an opening for a small photo, to which I added a couple of pieces of diagonal striped ribbon tied up in a bow. I removed the paper insert and used it as a guide for measuring the ribbon. Where the two pieces of 1.5" ribbon met, I added a strand of polka dot ribbon to mimic a tied package.
Before inserting the paper of ribbon back into the slot, I trimmed out the edge of the album frame with white pom pom trim. I added a polka dot bow to the top with fabric glue and tied on a cute tag. All ready for gift giving!
