When you plan to live a long life, scrapbooking birthday memories can start to look the same. This birthday mini file folder album is not only a great way to renew that birthday energy, but also a great birthday gift!
If you want some sentiment cards and cute sayings to get yourself started we’ve provided you with a fun printable below that you can download and play with!
The first step is to design the album. For this specific version, you’re going to take a file folder and cut it down to six inches (if you want the file tab to be in your design cut around it).
The second step is to cover the pages. You are going to cut six inch strips of some of your favorite paper and then cover each piece of the file folder with it, starting with the cover. Susan recommends using double sided adhesive tape to stick your paper to your mini albums since this craft will use more handling.
After you have added interactive elements and put down your paper, the third step is to decorate! Tiny Celebrate or Celebrate is always a fun accessory set to utilize for birthday anything. In general, when working on your own file folder mini album you’re going to want to consider Tiny Borders and Tiny Accessories just because of the size.
The fourth step is to add any of your pictures and journal entries just to give it that personal story-telling touch.
