My daughter had special little books for her children with a picture of the family members. They loved going through their special books and naming the individuals and remembering special times with them. When they got a gift, they would go to the book and look at the picture of the person who sent it. They lived away from most of the family while the grandkids were little, and these books were so special as it was before any type of Facetime.
I decided to make a book like this for my Great Granddaughter. I began gathering photos. I have lots of photos of our side of the family, but want to include all of her family. I downloaded what I could from Facebook, but also have added many blank pages with a card insert that can be replaced with additional photos.
I have chosen my favorite sized two ring binder – 4″ x 4″. To print the photos, you can print at home or order locally as a 4″ x 6″. Just make sure you have ample space on each side to trim to 4″ x 4″. I prefer to crop the photos to 4″ x 4′ before I print and then center on the 4″ x 6″. This gives a nice white border and fills the pocket nicely.
