This is a super simple and quick mini-album that I think would be perfect as a Christmas card insert for those special people in your life.  I was also delighted that the small size worked so well with some of my older, less-than-stellar photos.  You could also follow the same pattern using other JBS mini-bingo packs to make back-to-school, birthday, valentine’s, Fourth of July, halloween, or thanksgiving mini-albums.
