handmade selfie album by ambassador Kristin Tweedale of rukristin.
Hey Bluebird Chic fans! I’m Kristin, one of the ambassadors for this amazing brand, and today I’m going to share with you a quick scrapbook mini album that I created.
A few weeks back, here on the blog, we were chatting about tips for taking selfies. My tip was sometimes you need to forget about using your big girl camera and take out the cell phone for quick photo ops.
I’m a firm believer that women need to get in front of the camera more. My grandma was always the photographer in the family, and because of that, there are so many family photos where she’s behind the lens instead of in the photo.
So a few years back I started a weekly selfie challenge on instagram designed to help women feel more comfortable taking selfies, and sharing the stories of their lives. The challenge is called Thursday 3 and takes place on Instagram using the hashtag #Thursday3. To participate, all you have to do is snap a photo of yourself and write down three right-now facts about your life.
I put together this very simple mini-album scrapbook with a few of my favorite #Thursday3 photos.
Putting together your own selfie album is simple:
- First I got eight of my favorite photos and had them printed to 4×4″.
- Second I trimmed some patterned paper the same size.
- Next, I stuck a sheet of patterned paper on the back of each photo.
- I embellished the pages with washi tape along the edge, and added a plastic number to each page.
- Finally, I punched two holes in each page and added them to two binder rings.
This is a quick and easy way for you to make a mini-scrapbook of your favorite photographs. Thanks so much for checking out my project. Now go get in front of the camera!
