Mini Scrapbook

I made a pocket scrapbook for my mom and my mother in-law for Mother's Day a couple years ago.  Everyone loved it so much that the our dads wanted one for Father's Day too.  You can tell the scrapbooks have been well loved. 

Here is how I made the scrapbook.  First I cut cardstock pages to the size of 3"x4".  Then I went ahead and punched two holes on the left hand side of the paper.  This allowed me to see how much room I had to work with on the page.  I found some quotes to go with the pictures and mounted them to the cardstock.  For the cover I cut a square out in the center for a picture to be mounted and then put the cover on a piece of cardstock.  After I completed all the pages I threaded a ribbon through the holes and added some metal charms.  I think any mother would love to have a little pocket scrapbook for Mother's Day.
