Lovin' the Homemade Gifts

This year I'm all about homemade, handmade, original, and creative gifts as you will see in many of the posts that are up and coming here on "Lovin' the Holidays"!

This year one of the most popular, well I believe most popular will be hand made photo books.

How do you make these? Well follow the simple and easy instructions below:

Card stock (you can use any color)
A variety of photos (any size, you can either use all 4 x 6, 5 x7, etc..)
Stickers (regular stickers, foam stickers, your choice)
Ribbon, buttons, get creative with how you will design your mini photo books.

~You can even have your child/children make their own little pictures on the card stock to include with the special photos of your choice

scissors (can use crinkle cut for a more personal edge)
3 whole punch
Printer (for your photos unless you get them printed at your local retailer)

Its kind of like scrapbooking except you make the book yourself, add your own photos, and decorate it however you choose! It puts a personal touch and an artistic flair on holiday gift giving!
