Craft Idea: Scrapbook a Special Event

Posted on: March 28, 2008

Another great craft idea if you’re looking for a great handmade gift, an activity for children or a hobby to keep you busy during the summer is to scrapbook a special event. Scrapbooks are great fun to make and even more fun to look back on later and reminisce all the memories. You can do a scrapbook of most any event such as:

• Birthdays
• Christmas
• Thanksgiving
• Summer vacation
• Easter
• New Years
• Pregnancy
• Birth of a baby
• Anniversary
• Wedding
• And more

If there is a holiday or special event happening, then you can do a scrapbook of it. It’s also possible to go back to past events where photos were taken and create a scrapbook from this. You can also make scrapbooks from many materials that you already have lying around your home so it’s easy and inexpensive to do.

First you will want something to be used as the book. You can use a photo album, a purchased scrapbook to fill or you can create your own. You can even use posterboard or construction paper cut to the right size and with holes punched in to tie it together to create your own scrapbook.

Next you need photos of your event to use in your scrapbook. You can cut them, crop them or change and edit them however you choose to make them right for your scrapbook theme and idea. It is a good idea to arrange your photos in the order and position you want them in before you start permanently attaching them to your scrapbook.

Now it is time to collect your other scrapbook extras. You can use pieces of construction paper, craft paper, stickers, stencils, stamps and anything else you desire to decorate your scrapbook. You may want to write in dates, captions or other details on your photos. It’s up to you what you want to do- this is the freedom of the scrapbook.

Add details, decorations and more however you desire. You may get wild and creative or you may choose to stick with a common theme. For example, if your photos are of a family 4th of July event, you may keep your colors and decorations red, white and blue. You can also include some great quotes about Independence Day and other fun, related details.

You can be as creative as you choose with your scrapbook, using any combination of materials, paper types and more. The point of the scrapbook is that it is handmade and creative and that it will create memories that are preserved for many years to come. You can make it a family event to create the scrapbook and everyone can have a piece of the creativity. You can also choose to give it to someone for a special gift or as a holiday gift.
