I did it! I made my first badge album and Sneak Peak!

I made my first badge album with a kit I'm still working on called Jump. It was so much fun and turned out really cute (at least i think so). I made one for me and I'm working on one for each of the kids grandparents. Creating badge albums is so easy. You can find the badge protectors at walmart for under $2.00 or most office supply stores. edit: I should say you can find it at most Walmarts. We just finally got a Walmart in our town and I hate it. Its so small and doesn't carry most of the things I want like badge protectors. So I had to go out of town to pick up mine. The trip was well worth it though!
Here is a little sneak peak of the kit I'm working on.

I have the badge album complete just need to package it up so look for that and my new kit in the store sometime next week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Hummie!
Im so glad I'm not the only one who didn't have a clue what badge albums I just found out about them a month or two ago on DST someone was in search of them. Badge albums are just little albums made for name badge protectors. I got a pack of 12 size 2.55"x3.35" at Walmart for $1.64. they are so easy to make lo's for because they are so small. Just remember when making your own to make your lo slightly smaller than the size of your protector so it will fit easily. When you are done you attach them with ribbons or brads or what ever your heart desires.

I love these albums because you can just throw them in your purse. And they are great gifts for Grandparents.

have a great day!

These albums are too cute. I have a quick question. What's the best way to print them out? I am working on one and still haven't figured out what's the best way.
I would like to know how you did it.
