Hand-made photo albums for wallet size photos

Kale turned a year last week.  We celebrated on Friday night.  My son brought the pictures they had taken previously so that I could cut them apart.  There were 22 different poses in wallet size. I thought, 'how in the world would Beth keep them all straight'...and my creativity started to bloom.  I would make her something to keep them separate.  There were 3 sets of 6 that coordinated, then these 4 that went together.  So I started with this set.

Directions:
1. Cut a 12X12  piece of Baja Breeze CS and cut it 5"X12".
2. Score it at: 2 7/8", 3 1/8", 5 7/8", 6 1/8", 8 7/8", 9 1/8" on the long side and 1 1/2" on the short side

Here's the front view.  I used our Storytime DSP  #126907 to decorate it.


Kale loved opening his gifts!  He knew exactly what it was all about.  Beth sat him on top of this last gift from all of us on Tyler's side (a small sliding board). He sat there and laughed at everyone like it was expected of him.

Cindy, I can't believe Kale is a year old already!! Time does fly!
This wallet photo album is a terrific idea-you are so clever! We are so lucky to have you!! I am already planning several-the ideas are endless.

Hi Debbie, Thank you so much for your sweet comments. Yes, can't believe he's almost walking and so stinkin' smart, not to mention adorable!
I'm so glad that this idea will give you some inspiration!
