planner . organizer . mini album | the details

You saw the sneak peek, now for the details! A mini album like this one has so many uses, you may just find yourself making quite a few of these throughout the coming years. Yes, they're that easy. If you'd like the supply list and a quick tutorial on how to fold the pages, click here.

the mini album

Let's squeeze in project to last-minute project to satisfy our need to be organized and get ready for 2013 with this Mini Album feature first seen on the My Mind's Eye blog. 

the details

It could be...
+  a perpetual calendar - you'll finally have one place to jot down all your birthdays and anniversaries. 
+  a gift guide - write down your awesome ideas while you think of them so you won't be wondering what that great idea you had a few months ago was and now you can't think of it!
+  a Brag book for the  grandparents with photos of their precious grandchildren - separated out by month so they have a time capsule of how they've grown. 

I've used a planner similar to this one in the past, with just 3 pockets, and I used it for my Christmas lists, added my grocery lists and recipe cards in two pockets and receipts went inside an envelope in the 3rd pocket. See, such a versatile little planner.
The pocket pages can be designed to be as large or small as you wish. Play around with some scraps to decide if you'd like a shorter page, a deeper pocket, a narrower mini book. The graph papers are held together with decorative brads and are a stylish way to write a few notes and reminders.

If you decide to use the planner as a brag book, make your pages a bit smaller and it will hold your 4x6 snapshots and fit into Grandma's purse!
