    Need To Make...

    For my b/f's birthday I'm doing a little scavenger hunt... Each hint will consist of a picture of something/place significant in our realtionship and something "useful" (i.e. photo mounting tape, b&w film, guitar string ---he's a photographer & musician)---with a balloon tied to it, so he doesn't have to spend hours looking for the stuff. :) The final destination is a "living room picnic" at my house. It's not elaborate but I want to make a little "book" to slide the pictures into, so he can keep them. I'll only need four or five pages, so don't want to buy a whole mini-album.

    I can pretty well figure out how to make the pages, I just can't figure out what to do to make them suitable for displaying the pictures... if that makes sense?

    Any ideas anyone???

    Thanks,
    Gina

    do you mean how to make the pages so you can slide in the photos? What about that foam stuff? I think you can buy it by the sheet at any craft store(Michaels, Hobby Lobby). Cut to size(like a frame), adhere to page leaving one side open to slide photo in, bind like a book. Actually, binding at the top so it flips open might work better. Or maybe you can just use precut mats from the framing dept, but those might be a bit costly. Maybe make your own out of heavy cardstock?
    Either way, you could then write something meaningful or decorate however you wish. I'm not sure about that foam stuff - I've never used it.
    Good luck!
