I have folder upon folders of photographs on my hard drive, a majority of which have never been printed out let alone placed inside a photo album. But this is one of my goals in life, to have a collection of family photo albums, something I can pass down to the boys. My favorite albums to use are Kolo albums, particularly the Catalina albums. They are really well made and come in a variety of colors.
When I was in Korea I came across these simple kraft photo albums which I think make perfect gifts for grandparents or family members.
I put together a little album of our time in Korea for some family members, highlighting our adventures in Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and Macau.
There are 16 double-sided pockets so they hold 32 photographs, which I feel makes it a relatively easy project to finish in a few hours. I cut out cardstock to fit each pocket and designed some coordinating labels to write down little captions for the photographs.
And for some pages I just slid in a photograph, no caption needed.
I also found a nifty album that can be used to hold business cards ...
...or small photographs.
