Turn an Office-Supply Binder into a Heritage Album
Design by Sande Krieger
Sande decided to help her youngest son get to know his relatives better with an album about his family tree when he was assigned a genealogy project for school. She added a tree paper piecing to the cover of a three-ring binder and topped it with tags and old jewelry. She slipped completed album pages into 8-1/2x11" sheet protectors purchased from an office supply store.
