Birthday Mini Album Idea

Today is my husband’s 29th birthday (Happy Birthday Baby!), so I made this mini album for him in place of a birthday card. First of all, I have to give him total credit for the idea – he sent me 30 emails on my birthday, each one listing something he loves about me. So naturally, I wanted to make a list for him too ! To make the album, I first decorated the whole thing with coordinating papers (the measuring tape and ledger papers are great for list/accomplishment themes). Then I added romantic photos from our recent trip to Cape Cod. Finally, I added word strips with the 29 things I love. The front is just a title page, so you will know what to expect on the inside, and the back panel has the handwritten birthday message on it. I love accordion albums like this one, because you can fan them out and put them on display in front of a mirror, so it’s easy to see all the pages at once.
