About this project

Event Lesson - Back to School * Backpack Mini-Album

I created this mini-album for my daughter, who is starting preschool this year. It's pages are laminated and it attaches to her backpack with a Tim Holtz [] cable ring (photo 1).
The base for the entire album was a pack of playing cards by My Mind's Eye [](photo 3).

I printed off several photos of our family in sizes that would fit when adhered to the back of the playing cards (approximately 2.5“ x 3.5”), then I paired playing cards with photos and added a few embellishments-either to the photos themselves or to the back of the playing cards (photos 5 & 6 ). Photos 5-11 show several of the inside album pages.

Once the pages were complete, I laminated them and added a beaded pearl chain and a charm (photo 13). I slid the pages onto the cable (you could also use a binder ring [] or even ribbon) and attached it to her backpack.

She loves showing off her pictures to her friends and teachers!
