How to Make a Scrap Book

May 13, 2013

If you're looking to get crafty, making a scrapbook is a fabulous way to keep all of your photos and memories you've collected in one place. It's a fun and creative way to put together a book full of your favorite experiences and events so you can always look back on your memories and never lose anything. It can be anything you want it to be - a scrapbook is basically just a place to collect things that remind you of the good times you had!

Get Started

Making a scrapbook is super easy - all you need is a book with blank pages. You don't need to buy an actual scrapbook from a craft store but you can if you like, it can just be any blank notebook. The bigger the better though as you want enough room to add stickers, illustrations, text or anything else else!

What you need:

An empty scrapbook 

All your photos and keepsakes

Card stock in any color your like 

Markers

Pencil and eraser 

Scissors

Glue stick

Any extra decorative items you'd like (example: stickers, glitter, metallic pens, confetti etc)

How To:

1. Gather photos, mementos, ticket stubs, postcards and anything else you want to add to the scrapbook. 

2. Start dividing up your photos and keepsakes into groups that you want to go together.

3. Once you know what you want on each page, it's time to start designing your layout! Experiment with color and placement before you glue anything, and figure out what additional decorative items you want with each photo or memento. Once it's glued on it will be hard to take off so make sure it's just the way you want it before you stick it on permanently! 

3. Personalize each page with your own illustrations, stickers, and other other decorative touches. This is the most fun part so don't be afraid to go wild and really make it reflect your personality. 

4. Once you're all done you can now start decorating the cover! Cover it with some nice fabric, stencils, monograms or paper and you're all done! 

Once you start scrapbooking, don't be surprised that you start finding it addictive. Not only is it a fun creative outlet that you can do with friends, the finished product is always going to be something you'll want to keep forever

Scrapbooks - Hot or Not?

  • Hot. I can't wait to organize my pics in a scrapbook.
  • Not. Who wants to spend hours organizing photos?
  • Kind of hot.
  • I wouldn't mind working on a scrapbook with my friends.

Definite red flag; talk about it with him/her/them.  other signs, include: -being doted and adored one day, and the next being pushed away and ignored, -you're afraid of your partner -they obsess over and call/text you constantly -you may find you've lost your confidence -many ups and downs in the relationship, constant roller coaster -you aren't yourself. you change and adapt for them, drop hobbies if they're not into them, etc. -something tells you you cant trust them again, there are many resources out there if you need to talk. never be afraid to speak about it to someone- a family member, a teacher, a close friend, the police, a guidance counselor, etc.  I bolded that one part. The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there.

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?
