Have you fallen in love with the Instax mini like we have? It's such a fun camera to have around. We also know many people love Instagram (especially us at Graphic 45!). Many places print mini photos out of your Instagram photos that would fit perfectly in this mini. This tutorial from Ginger will inspire to make and give a set to your loved ones! We know we want to try it.

"Pictures are such a great part of the holiday season. I wanted to create some really easy mini books to give to family and friends. This project is perfect for anyone on your Christmas list. This mini book is fast and only uses 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock for the base and then a couple of sheets of your favorite Graphic 45 12x12 Designer Paper for embellishing." ~Ginger
