Mini Badge Album Tutorial and a FREEBIE!!

Some of you many have already seen these cute little mini badge albums.  They are so easy to make and they're the perfect size little photo albums for your purse or diaper bags.  You can even make these albums as gifts for mother's day, birthdays, etc.  Read on to find out more about them.


I made some mini badge album layouts from my new digital scrapbook paper pack called "cutie patootie."  I'll hopefully have it available in our Etsy shop in a few days.  These mini badge album layouts are FREE for you to use!  They are 3.25 x 2.38 and fit perfectly inside the 12 pack of badge holders you get at Office Depot.

The only thing you have to do to get this album kit for free is become a follower to our blog!  That's it!  Then it's yours to use!  Click on the DOWNLOAD link below the image to get your free mini badge album files.  They have been saved as png's with transparent holes for your pictures.

If you do not have an image editing program at home (such as Photoshop Elements)....no worries!  You do not have to use digital layouts.  You can use regular scrapbook paper and elements to create your own layout by cutting and pasting the same way as shown above.  

Once you are finished creating your digital pages, just print them out.  I used a paper that's a little bit thicker than regular print paper but whatever you have will work fine.  

You can get this 12 pack of badge holders at Office Depot.


Just cut your images out then insert them into the badge holders.  You can use front and back!
Use some ribbon to hold the pages together and then you're done!  You may want to add a little fabric glue or super glue to help the bow stay.  Super cute and super easy!  Caley wanted me to make this one for her to keep in her purse.  

Please send us a link if you decide to use our layouts!  We would love to see your pictures!!

Thank y'all for visiting!!
