Turn reclaimed cardboard into a DIY mini photo album!
That light cardboard from old cereal boxes, frozen pizza boxes, or six packs is endlessly useful for crafting. It's sturdy, easy to cut, and flexible enough to use in all kinds of projects from gift boxes to sweet little toys. Over at Dollar Store Crafts, Rhonda shares another awesome craft you can make from reclaimed light cardboard: a mini photo album!
Rhonda uses new wrapping paper to decorate her photo album, but you could really use any kind of pretty paper you like. Maybe you are like me and save pretty wrapping paper from gifts that folks give you? You could also use recycled scrapbook paper or even the insides of junk mail envelopes to cover your album. Oh, the upcycling possibilities!
To make your album, you will need:
- Reclaimed cardboard - old cereal boxes will work best
- Reclaimed or recycled paper
- Mod Podge
- A brayer - this is a rolly tool that will help you cover the cardboard in paper without ripples and lumps. A rolling pin will work in a pinch!
