Personalised gifts can mean so much more. Whether you’re creating a beautiful gift of memories for Mother’s Day, a thoughtful album for someone special in your life or simply taking the time to display your favourite memories in a way that’s unique to you, our much-loved DIY Album is the perfect place to start.
Whatever the occasion, here are some simple steps to help you create a beautiful keepsake of your own, using new-season kikki.K and your own personal touches.
1 | Choose your DIY Album (we have a few!), then select patterned paper, stickers, decorative tape and any other supplies you like to decorate each page. Wrapping Paper cut to size can make for a great decorative base for your page. Remember to choose colours and designs that suit your style.
2 | Print your favourite memories to treasure then decide where to place them. Frame each one perfectly with Adhesive Photo Corners. We recommend using 2 on opposite corners of your image to secure your snaps without warping or damaging them. You can also use Decorative Paper Tape to affix your images if you prefer a more creative approach.
3 | Fill each page with personal touches and messages mum (or any loved one!) will love. Share stories, traditions, memories of time together. You could even invite the whole family or friends to help!
Add Memory Maker Labels to each picture to mark details and dates. Fix decorations in place with matching Decorative Tapes. Embellish however you wish with Decorative Stickers, paintings, drawings, or even attach an envelope and slide in a Greeting Card with a heartfelt message to treasure.
4 | Finish with a beautiful cover photo of you together. You can attach it with glue or Double-Sided Adhesive Dots. There is a beautifully debossed space on the cover of our DIY Albums for you to fit a 9.4cm x 6.4cm photo of your choice.
5 | Wrap with love to make their day! Accompany your beautiful album with a thoughtful handwritten card, wrap your finished album with beautifully coordinating Wrapping Paper and embellish with unique pieces your special someone will love. We’ve used a floral sprig here, which can be attached with ribbon, tape or stickers, but you could use anything you like.
When creating your own DIY Album, remember to make it personal and have fun with it. Whether your album is for Mother’s Day, a birthday, anniversary or just for you, enjoy getting creative and making something to be proud of.
