I made customized photo albums for my cousin's basketball team as an end of season present. I just did the covers but another lady will fill them up with pictures from the whole season.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Buy the perfect size and color photo album. Remove the plastic cover and put it to one side.
