Adorable ideas for Back to School mini albums!

How is the year going by so quickly??? (I can’t believe it’s already August!) 

When my kids were little, that meant it was time to pick up allllll the supplies (plus fuzzy pencil holders) so they could go on to be scholastic champions! 

(… or at least show up on time and not fail their classes — some of my kids loved school, some were just there for the snacks)   

Even though this ‘back to school’ season is unlike any we’ve ever had, that’s no reason not to hit your craft room! 

Whether it’s for your kiddos, grandkids, or friends, these “Back to School” themed mini albums are adorable, quick to make, and a super-fun way to preserve those memories (does anyone remember when trapper keepers were a thing? Only me? I feel like my kids all HAD to have those, anyway…)

Mini albums have always been a favorite of mine, so I’ve hunted down some inspiration to get you started! Check out below for all the super-cute ideas and let’s go spend time in our craft rooms!  


This apple-shaped mini album is so cute! Sooo many fun ways to embellish this one.

Vintage Inspired

Okay, this one reminds me of Tim Holtz-style layouts. For me, nothing beats a classic, vintage inspiration like this pop-up mini album!

Looking for a quick weekend project that will make everyone say, “Awww”?Then start your mini album with a clipboard for a base and build from there! SIDE NOTE: My grandkids would love to make these… would be a great art project with them 😊

Ruler & Ribbons

This tiny layout packs a big punch! Ribbons tied to paperclips makes it easy to add a little something extra to the cover. Added this one to my “gotta make” list! 😍
