Here's quick gift idea... Make an accordian mini album about 10 reasons why you love something. For example- 10 reasons why we love Grandpa. What grandfather wouldn't love to receive that? It's quick it's simple and definately a crowd pleaser. Ready made accordian album with coordinating papers help. But, it's easy to make your own accordian album too. A search on the internet will give you lots of ideas. My example is an album I made for my son that features our dog, his loyal sidekick and ever so faithful companion.
The inside of the album will come together quickly if you let your photographs help you to decide the reasons that you Love something. Study your photographs and the reasons will come to you quickly. Using your own handwriting for the journaling also speeds up the process and gives your album a personal touch.
One of the things I like best about making a 10 things album is you get to finally use up some of those number stickers we all have hanging around! For a nice finishing touch be sure to tie a ribbon around the entire album.
