You know how you get a sheet of tiny proofs when you develop pictures at the store? I think they are too cute to throw away so I decided to make a tiny photo album with them. I used the proofs from a recent vacation my husband and I took.



It measures about 1 1/8" by 1 1/8" and has 30 photos, plus a few title pages. I used scrap paper for the album cover and scrap embroidery thread to give it detail.



I'm really happy with how it turned out and will probably make more. The size makes it easy & cheap to mail. It would also be neat to have a mini library of tiny photo albums that you could keep at the office.

Really original and a great idea.  A lovely way to use those little thumbnail photos.

Two of my favorite things, books and pictures, made into another one of my favorite things, miniature! Genius! Well done, and I think having a little bookshelf of mini albums would be awesome!

I've got sheets and sheets of those proofs and I never knew what to do with them (what, just throw them out? Are you mad??). This is a brilliant idea and it looks fantastic! Well done you Cheesy

I always save the little proofs too but I just stick them in an envelope, your idea is much better. And so tiny! Great job.

Cute! Am I a dork if I was really tickled by the fact that the thumbnail for this post has an actual thumb in it?
