The first step you need to decide on is the purpose of your mini book album.
If it's going to be a standalone album, you can make the album yourself or purchase a small photo album (the type that holds one photo per sleeve).
Small photo albums can be purchased at a retail store, a craft store, or even a dollar store.
If you are thinking about using a mini scrapbook to enhance a 12×12 scrapbook page or even a handmade greeting card, make an album of six front/back pages or less.
Usually, when a mini scrapbook is used in this matter, the purpose of the scrapbook pages is to provide more details of the theme.
For example, let's say you want to make some scrapbook layouts about memories of your child enjoying his birthday cake as he turns two.
The other page might contain photos of your daughter helping to make the cake, the two of you decorating the cake, your son running his finger through the frosting, etc.
In regards to miniature scrapbook album ideas, it all starts with making a sturdy, long-lasting album.
First, decide on the size of the album you want to do. A popular size is 4×6 inches.

If your miniature photo scrapbook album is standalone like a bullejournal scrapbook type, then you have all sorts of binding options. A simple, yet elegant method is to punch two or three holes along the left side or top of your album and use mini metal rings, brass fasteners, yarn, twine, or ribbon to fasten the pages together.
Another fun option is to fold card stock into three sections, leaving a one-inch strip to adhere to the back cover. When the album is open, you simply unfold the page, revealing six pages.
You could also use one of the cardstocks as the main section (outside) of the mini scrapbook. Fold and cut a cardstock so that it is double the size of the desired scrapbook. Only use three or four sheets of cardstock, otherwise, your album will be too thick and may not stay together well.
Using liquid glue, glue each folded cardstock separately to the centerfold of the main cardstock. Press the album together and let the glue thoroughly dry.
You may also try to place the cardstock pages in one pile. Fold the top cardstock in half to form a crease. Open the cardstock back up and sew along the crease.
