Aren't they fun?? I saw them and thought it would be easy to recreate it using Instagrams taken throughout the year - here's how my version turned out:
I used square paper mache boxes that are from Michael's or Hobby Lobby (for a dollar or two) and some extra card stock I already had on hand.
The boxes I used were 4" square so I cut strips of card stock that were 3 1/2" wide so they would easily fit inside the box. I had to glue two strips together to get the length I wanted. Then just fold your card stock into an accordion like the photo above. Print off the Instagram photos you want to use sized to 3" by 3". Trim & glue the photos to sections of your accordion - I also used circles of kraft paper with verses & "Merry Christmas" - and decorate it as you like, making sure to leave the first square blank.
Once your accordion with photos & decorations is finished, glue that blank first square to the bottom of the box. Then you can add a ribbon tab or fabric paper clip to the first accordion square so you can easily open up the accordion album.
