Cutesy Badge Album
I recently came across this idea to make a mini scrapbook out of name badges. My best friend from elementary school all the way through high school just had a birthday and I made a mini album for her, thinking it might be an inexpensive, but special gift.
Here's what I did: designed the inserts in Photoshop with cute digital scrapbooking kits that I found online. I put in cute pictures of us from college, as well as more recent ones of our little ones. The great thing is that I can definitely reuse the templates that I made, so although it did take some time to make them, I can use them again and it should take much less time. Each badge is 3.25" by 2.5", so I just designed each template to be that size, emailed the final inserts to Copy Corner and had them print them, cut them out and put them inside the little badges. Voila!
You could definitely print these on your home printer if it prints high quality. Ours happens to be out of ink right now.
I decided to add some ribbons for decoration after attaching the badges together with those little metal rings that open and close.
This could make a really cute Christmas gift for someone you love!
I want to see pictures if you decide to make this!
