Heart-Shaped Mini Scrapbook Album Idea

Here’s a quick and easy project I made with all of my favorite Valentine’s Day photos from last year – a fun little scrapbook my kids love to look through!

Shaped Mini Scrapbook Tutorial:

Supplies:

Shaped mini scrapbook pages (you can make these or buy them)

Fastener to hold album together

Pretty scrapbook paper (I used two 12×12 pieces; one patterned, one solid shimmery one)

Photos (mini size works best)!

Adhesive and scissors

Steps:

1. Based on the size and number of pages, decide on which photos you will need for your album. Because my heart-shaped album didn’t leave much room for photos, I re-sized all of mine to 1.5×2.5 and printed them out on one 8.5×11 sheet of glossy paper.

2. Use one of your mini scrapbook pages to trace the shape onto the scrapbook papers. I made some of my hearts solid and some patterned.

3. Cut out the shapes inside the line, so you won’t have any over-hanging paper. Adhere them to the scrapbook pages.

4. If you have left-over scraps of paper, you can add them to the pages too, for a little extra decoration.

5. Adhere your photos on top of the scrapbook paper.

6. Add a title and/or some other words if you like, then assemble the scrapbook and you’re finished!
