Crochet bound mini album


As you know I've been making crochet boxes with thrifted greeting cards.  I even made a little purse.  Well, I decided to combine my love of scrapbooking and crochet.  This is what I made:

All of the paper is from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection (the only collection I own because it's expensive!).

I cut the paper to the sizes I need for pages and pockets.  Then I punched holes and single crocheted all around all of the pieces.  Then I crocheted all of the pages together on the left side to form the binding.

The charm hanging on the side came from my husband's workshop.  He had a bucket of old hardware.  I picked out the most interesting pieces.  I super glued the black beads to it and then hung it from the book with a piece of chain.  You might recognize the chain from one of my recent haul posts.



The silver thing sticking out next to the roses is a broken sewing needle threader.

These pocket pages are not done yet.  Neither is the next set of pages so I won't even show those.
I'm a little stuck on this project.  I will finish it though.

The crochet on this is not difficult but it is time consuming.  If you decide to do a project like this, think about the strength of the paper you are using.  You might need to double it up.


  1. Wow! That is really beautiful. I've been eyeing up the Steampunk Debutante for some time and I think I might just cave! I love the crochet idea, too. Really enhances the already very charming vintage type look of the Graphic 45 paper.

  2. Thanks! I'm really happy with it.
