Scrapbook: A Treasure Trove of Your Child's Lifetime Memories

Scrapbook: A Treasure Trove of Your Child’s Lifetime Memories

It is always good to keep memories of your child in any format. I always used to take pictures of my kid during every festival and monthly milestone. When a child gets older, they usually feel amused to go through their old photos of infancy. Here, I am sharing tips on securing all beautiful memories of your child’s growth in one scrapbook. 

It’s always good to make handmade photo books or scrapbooks using tinted sheets and texture papers. You can stick one memory on each sheet. The A5 book size can be perfect for a scrapbook. The cover pages should be made from thick sheets, and the photos must be printed on glossy sheets. You can also add cute pictures or tags of animals, flowers, baby accessories, toys, etc. Scrapbooks or photo books can be made theme-based or color-coordinated, where all decorations and colors used reflect the same theme or tone. Binding rings should be used to bind the scrapbook, allowing you to add more sheets whenever required. There are many videos available on the web teaching about DIY scrapbook making. 

It can also be a great stress buster during your pregnancy when you can make your DIY scrapbooks for your kid to uplift your mood and keep yourself engaged. It is sure to give you immense pleasure to create something for your little one. 

Following are the items to be included in the scrapbook:
1. Monthly birthday milestones
2. Festival milestone photos
3. Name influence
4. All first experience
5. Birth details

Materials required:
1. Texture sheets
2. Tinted sheets
3. Thick cardboard sheets
4. Scissors
5. Glue or a two-way tape (thin and transparent) 
6. Marker pens of various colors
7. Glitter pens of various colors
8. Hole-making machine
9. Binding rings
10. Stickers for decorations. 

Handmade scrapbooks can save you some extra bucks as you would not require to buy the expensive ones available online. Also, you can involve family members or elder children, if any, in these activities. You can keep the scrapbook or photobook in a decorated cardboard box made from recycled cardboard available at home.
