Question Mini Albums

OK, I have only made on mini album--very basic. I love this concept, but since photos are usually 5x7 or 4x6, how do you fit them in a mini album? I've never seen anyone share a mini withthe pictures in it, and I respect their privacie. I surely don't want to fold a photo, so any assistance or tips you can provide, I'd really appreciate!TIA, Lisa

I choose my pictures so that they can be cropped to fit the size needed or I print a smaller version of the picture. HSH!

I crop/cut my photos to work on the pages. Here's a 5 x 7 album I made: https://picasaweb.google.com/1025111...erFunMiniAlbum

Thanks so much for sharing your album. It's super cute! Did you use a premade chipboard album or did you cut/bind it yourself?

I covered cereal/cracker boxes with paper. Then I cut the pages and used dies to cut the ends. I bound it with my Cinch.
