Have you ever scrapbooked before?
Do you have a bunch of photos, postcards, and other craft supplies scattered around your house? Organizing these items into a scrapbook is a lot of fun and it helps you save your memories.
To get started, think about a topic for your scrapbook. This will help you choose which pictures and items you will include in your scrapbook. For example, your topic could be sports, vacation, summer, winter, or pets.
Scrapping on the cheap
There is no right or wrong way to make a scrapbook—but there are ways to save money while you scrapbook. Here are some tips:
- Instead of buying a scrapbook, make your own. Use a hole punch on a pile of colorful paper to make your own scrapbook. Tie the pages together with your favorite ribbon or yarn.
- Cut up old magazines instead of using stickets. Why spend money on stickers when you can make your own? Use double-sided tape or glue to stick words and picture from magazines in your scrapbook.
- Scrapbook with friends. Host a scrapbooking party with your friends so that you can all share your supplies. This is a cheap way to get new supplies.
- Save all of your materials. If you cut up a piece of scrapbooking or construction paper, save the scraps left behind. You never know when they'll come in handy later!
The easiest way to save money while you scrapbook is to look around your house for supplies before going to a craft store...
