Now that I’ve convinced you that mini-albums are the way to go, you’re probably wondering how to store them! I like to have mine accessible — these small scrapbooks are meant to be played with and loved and looked at over and over again. Because they are smaller than traditional 12×12 scrapbook albums, I find that my kids reach for the mini-albums much more often than they get the “big books” down from their shelves. So mine are in a bunch of baskets scattered around the house, like this:
- Put a few mini-albums out at a time, seasonally, and rotate them.
- Place them in the kids’ rooms next to their beds for bedtime reading (how cute is it that they can read their “own” book?).
- Select a special album and place it on the dresser in the guest room when a family member comes to visit.
Most of all, enjoy them!
