Mini scrapbook albums are a great way to build a page around a single photo! Use chipboard as the base of each page and adhere your cardstock onto it. Always use a thin layer of liquid glue so your paper does not bubble - we love Mod Podge!
DIY Recipe Book: This is such a heartfelt gift that any cook would appreciate. Create a recipe book, and include their favorite recipes. If you can get a hold of them, it's a good idea to add in their secret recipes as well. Source: A Beautiful Mess
