Here’s a cool scrappy craft that caught my eye at the By Shasta blog. It’s a handmade photo album wherein each page is a different shape. Nifty! By Shasta used a Cricut to cut the shapes, but you could easily freehand-cut the page shapes (or enlarge shapes you want on your computer, print, and cut them out). She used recycled cereal boxes (and other cardboards) to make the bases of each page.

It would be cool to make one for your Holiday pictures with recycled wrapping paper and holiday shaped-pages.
