Today's Easy and Frugal Gift Idea - Accordian Photo Albums

This year, I'm on the look-out for thrifty yet fun and easy gift ideas. These accordian photo books seem to fit the bill perfectly! They are completely customizable and you can put together several in a short amount of time. It's fun to pick out different papers and ribbons for decorating the books - make several identical or personalize them for specific people!

You can give them empty to be filled with photos by the recipient or fill them with your own photos. You can make them with as few or as many pages as you like. These could be tailored to be used as Christmas cards, too, by adding pictures of your family from the year. So many options!

I have seen these given as wedding party gifts. They would also make great Mother's Day or Father's Day gifts or just something fun to give for any occassion!

Check out this tutorial here.
