Article SummaryX

To make your own homemade scrapbook, you’ll need 9 ½ by 12 ½-inch (24 by 32-cm) sheets of colored paper, a hole punch, and some ribbon. If your sheets of paper are a little bigger or smaller, they’ll still work. First, mark halfway up the short side on one of the sheets of paper using a pencil. Then, punch a hole 2 inches (5 cm) above and below the halfway point, about ½-inch (1 ¼-cm) in from the edge of the paper. Do the same thing on the other sheets of paper, making sure the holes are in the same place on each one. Now, stack the sheets of paper so the holes are aligned. Pass your ribbon down through one hole and up through the other. Tie a bow between the two holes, then cut off the excess ribbon. Decorate the front of your scrapbook with markers, colored pencils, cut-out images, or stickers. Fill the inside pages with pictures, quotes, stories, and meaningful mementos. To learn how to best store your scrapbook, keep reading!
