If you can't find the perfect album, create it. We took a plain album with removable pages, covered it with cloth, and added a decorative label and custom pages. Decorate cover: Use double-sided adhesive sheets (photo adhesive paper) to cover album with book cloth. Download cover design; print. Cut out with a utility knife. Glue to album with an archival glue stick; let dry. Make pages: Remove original pages. Using originals as a guide, cut black card stock to size. Punch holes through new pages; insert into album. (Reserve originals for another use.) Use photo corners and charm frames to mount photos. Label pages with a white gel pen; decorate with rub-on borders.
