With Mother’s Day right around the corner, our next couple of How-To’s Day posts will focus on gifts for grandma. This week’s brag book is a gift we have given on numerous occasions. This book is durable for purse carrying, useful for braggy grandmas (as all grandmas should be) and cheap to put together. It is also easy to update at Christmastime or next Mother’s Day.

You will need:
3M Brag book 4×6 (found at Wal-Mart in the photo album section)
A cardstock cover page
A stack of your favorite photos

Step 1: Remove the cardstock picture that comes in the first pocket of your brag book and trace onto a plain cardstock of your choosing for your cover page.

Step 2: Create your cover page digitally like I did here or craft it by hand. I used this “We love grandpa” photo for a Father’s Day brag book cover.

Step 3: Print your favorite photos as they are or jazz them up digitally. If you are a paper scrapper, you could scrapbook your whole brag book without having to worry about the pages being ruined as long as you can fit each page into the 4×6 sleeves.

Step 4: Insert photos, wrap and gift!
