Generic photo albums are really boring to look at, so I decided to personalize some of mine by covering them with fabric. That doesn't mean you have to use fabric to customize your own photo album though. Use whatever materials you like to bring a personal touch to the covers.
I find the cheap, generic photo albums are easiest to work with, because they have simple screws and bindings that you can remove to add or take out pages, which means they're much easier to disassemble and customize, then put back together.

into the fabric before gluing it onto the album cover.
Customizing empty photo albums also make great gifts for other people, and you can include photos, notes and other fun decorative touches to some of the pages as a nice surprise for the person receiving the album.
Don't like keeping your photos in an album? How about in a box?
