I so love how this project came out… I read an idea on a message board from someone who said that they created a mini-book for their child using their birthday cards… And I thought, OMGosh!! I should do that with the Christmas cards from this year!! I HATE to throw them away (hence the billions of random cards that explode from every drawer in the kitchen when you're looking for utensils). I too almost all of this years' Christmas Cards, and kind of arranged them. I took the photo cards and matted them and placed them on patterned paper that I punched the edges of… then I used a Zutter 8×8 Acrylic cover set (which I cut down to 8×6.5) and decorated. Bound the whole thing with my Bind it all, added a litte ribbon, and Voila!!! Super quick and easy mini book that I'll hopefully create with upcoming years an it will be fun to look through!!
