Making a mini scrapbook for a special birthday is a terrific way to celebrate a special milestone. This mini scrapbook is actually made with envelopes. It's a wonderful way to use up all those envelopes that you have stashed away. You can create a theme for your birthday mini, depending on who's special day you are recognizing. For this one, I was celebrating my husbands 65th birthday, so I wanted to show just how 65 candles look.
The thing that I like about this project is that it allowed me to use all the odds and ends that I had in my craft room and still make a memorable scrapbook for a remarkable celebration. You can chose to theme by color or paper if you would like. To me a birthday celebration should be bright and colorful. You could also theme by boy or girl. Of course if the person is celebrating an older milestone you could do a black and white theme. Other themes might be a sports theme, or something that the person enjoys. You can include pictures and words. It's all up to you !
You can use a Kraft paper envelope to place your mini to give it or make an envelope from a piece of scrap paper as I did. No matter how you make it, this project is sure to please
