Make a fold-out memory album for Mom

Filed Under: seasonal, Crafts, gifts

mom knows best by emilywjones on FlickrPicture frames are popular Mother's Day gifts, there's no doubt. They're also popular gifts for aunts, grandmothers, and cherished caregivers.

Rather than plucking a picture frame off of the shelf at your favorite store, however, why not give your mom a keepsake photo gift that she can treasure forever? DIY Network has directions for a fold-out memory book for anyone who treasures pictures of loved ones.

The album is made from envelopes, which are glued together in a "chain" by adhering the flap of one to the back of the next. After that, quotation stickers and other embellishments are used to decorate the envelopes. Mat your photos and journal on the back of each, then fold it all together for a thoughtful, sentimental gift.

This is also a perfect gift for those who live far away, because it's small and easy to mail!
