Compassion Crafts: A Photo Album

Jean Marie shared this idea with us: One of my most cherished possessions is an autograph book that I got when I was 10 years old. Since all autograph books are hardcover I couldn’t mail it to my sponsor child so I decided to make her one! I attached photos of my autograph book in her letter and explained what they are and how to use them. I used scrapbook paper of various patterns, a hole punch, some stick-on letters.
