>I know Christmas is long past but I have been meaning to post about this project since then! If you are like me you get lots of Christmas cards and pictures. I used to keep them until the next year and then toss them. Well then I stole this idea from an old friend and I love it! I put all the pictures in a scrapbook so that I can look at them from year to year and see how people have changed.
Here’s what you need:
– A scrapbook
– A glue stick
– A scissors
– Your Christmas cards/pictures
First I separate the cards from the pictures. I use the pictures on the cards as decoration on the pages. Because I don’t like to write on the pages I find a card that says the year and maybe “Merry Christmas” or something like that to use on my first page for the year.
Then I start cutting the pictures out of the photo cards. I also cut out the name so that in years to come I can remember whose children I’m looking at.
Sometimes I do not cut the pictures apart if I can’t bare to destroy the pretty card.
Sometimes I cut out fun shapes from the card to add a little extra ‘something’ to my page.
As you can see I arrange each page different. I cut everything out and lay it all out before gluing anything in place.
So that is how YOU can go from a pile of cards like this…
To an organized book like this…
