Brag albums are one of the best gifts ever for a parent or grandparent.  This pocketwatch brag album by Destri at The Mother Huddle has got to be the coolest one I’ve ever seen!  It’s small enough to carry in even the tiniest handbag or in a pocket, and it’s also manly enough that dad or grandpa will have an appreciation for it.  Look for thrifted watches for this project, which don’t even have to be working.  As an added bonus, of you find a wind-up watch to tear apart, you’ll also end up with a small stash of supplies for making steampunk jewelry or other projects!  [how to make a pocketwatch photo album]
