I'll be doing another mini album for my IL's but this time it'll be of all the kids birthdays and Cody's birth. The last mini album I got was chipboard and only had 5 or 6 pages in it so I had to by a second album to get the number of pages I needed. Which is why I was able to make a small brag book for my dad with the extra covers and pages.

What I'm looking for is an album that you can buy the extra pages you need without buying another whole album. With Emma's birthday on Saturday I'm going to need to get started ASAP

Anybody got any suggestions? I have a JoAnn's, 2 Michael's and an Archievers very near by us.

I have no good ideas. The closest I have come to a mini ablum is an 8x8 album. I gave one to someone blank as a gift, but I have no idea what it looks like now. I would suggest just going to one of the stores in your free time (yeah, I know, easier said then done) and see what they have. I guess you could also look at the 4x6 photo albums to see if that would work? I hope you find something!

check out the frame section at the craft stores and the chipboard they use for frame mats and cut it to the size you need and punch your holes. You can buy a piece for a buck or two depending on the thinkness.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy

Does is have to be chipboard? You could always go with a paper bag album and make as many pages as you need for cheap!

You could always do a paper bag album to cut down on the costs. They look so nice and it is really cheap to add extra pages!!
