Badge Holder Mini Album

I bought some plastic name badge holders a loooooong time ago and finally decided to dust them off and use them. My husband's sister had a baby a couple of months ago and everyone has been taking tons of pictures. I got a hold of a few and made this fun little album.

I used TAC's Hip Hop paper collection and Essential Elements. This album is very quick and simple to make. Each badge holder holds two pieces of the Hip Hop paper. I adhered a photo to the paper and then slid it inside each holder. I placed all the Essential Element tags on the outside of the badge holders, after I embellished them, and used small book rings to hold the album together.

I'm sure I could do a little more embellishing, but I also love the simple look of this. It's the perfect size to throw in my purse so that I can be ready to show off little Chase, and I don't have to be afraid that I'm going to tear anything up on the album.

Doesn't Chris look great holding little Chase? I can't wait until we get to be parents someday. He's going to make a great dad!

That is so neat! The album you sent me in the mail inspired me!! I am making an album of me and my hubby, using Angelee. So far it's looking good--for a beginner. Now, I am going nuts because I don't have enough pictures of us in wallet size! ;)

Great little album, Sarah, and what a wonderful gift!! I'm going to a crop next weekend, so maybe I should dust my badge holders off, too!!
