Scrap booking is simply an album of pictures and or with memorabilia like tickets, letters, certificates, or even candy wrappers, handwritten quotations from famous people and so on that can preserve and show in its subtle way or not, the stories behind each set of pictures. You can even right the story of the picture in the scrap book if you want to. The difference between a scrap book and a simple photo album is that a scrap book is usually decorated with a lot of materials and accessories.
Scrap booking can be actually considered as a creative hobby, but it does not necessarily mean that you should put pressure on yourself to be creative or only creative ones can make a scrapbook. Anyone can be as creative as she could, and anyone can make a scrapbook. One can always have his or her way with scrapbooking. He or she is free to decide how his or her scrapbook would look like. One could decorate and work with different variety of materials and accessories which one can make use of and make something creative out of these things. One can always have the option to make it simple, put glitters on it, or make it colourful or not. What is more is that, along these options one can choose from, he or she can also seek help or get inspired by other people’s way of making scrapbooks and all. Here are some tips that can help you make your own scrapbook.
One, you can choose whatever theme you’d like. It can be as colourful as the rainbow or it can also look old and vintage. One can also make use of cut papers in different shapes such as hearts, circles, squares, and so on. You can make shapes of objects out of it too as decorations. For example, with a few different sizes of circles, you can make a teddy bear decoration on your scrapbook. After cutting shapes, do not throw the leftover papers though, you can still make use of it and make something creative out of it. You can use it as borders of the pictures or you can still make different figures out of it.
Also do not overdo each of your pages. Limit yourself by just putting a maximum of five elements on each page. You do not want to steal the limelight from the picture itself. Be as creative as you can when decorating your scrap book. You can inspire yourself by watching videos or reading tips about scrap booking, too, if you want.
