Do you feel like you’ve fallen into a scrapbooking rut? If you’re looking for ways to spice up your scrapbooks, why not give some of these ideas a try? These suggestions are creative, unusual, and a lot of fun. Best of all, they’re easy to try! Even if you’re new to scrapbooking, you should be able to check these suggestions out.
Start Pressing Flowers
Usually, people cut flowers out of papers if they want to create a floral theme on a scrapbook page. Instead of creating fake flowers, why not try using the real thing? Pressing flowers is easy, and it can make your scrapbook smell lovely.
Pressing flowers takes time, so you’ll want to plan ahead if you’re going to be using flowers in your scrapbook. With that said, you should be able to do a lot with a few flowers. Once you start using real flowers on your scrapbook pages, you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with stickers and fake flowers.
Save Little Mementos
While photos are usually the focus of a scrapbook, you can increase the sentimental value of a page if you save small mementos. For example, if you go on a great date, you might want to save your ticket stub! If the relationship works out, you’ll be able to add that stub to your scrapbook later on.
Little mementos can add some personality to a scrapbook page and make it feel like it’s uniquely yours. When you show people your scrapbook, you’ll be able to tell them the stories behind these items. Even something as simple a receipt is worth saving. Keep a box of mementos and reach into the box when you’re working on a new scrapbook page.
Make Borders With Some Texture
There are lots of premade borders that you can buy for your scrapbook, but you might be able to create something more appealing if you make borders of your own. Use materials like buttons, ribbons, and paperclips.
Most scrapbook borders just lay flat. If you use unconventional materials to create borders, your borders will have a little more “oomph” to them. If you want your scrapbook to feel more unique, making your own borders is a terrific idea.
These creative scrapbooking ideas should help you to have even more fun when you’re working on your scrapbook. Keep all of these suggestions in mind so that you can give them a try. Experiment and work to create a scrapbook that’s a reflection of you!
