DIY: Scrapbook

Over the summer my friend Jess and I took a mini road trip to Vegas (read about it here). It was so much fun. So, for Jess' birthday I made her this little scrapbook of our adventure. It was a lot of fun to make! The covers are made from the backs of legal pads and I ordered our Instagram prints from Prinstagram. I highly recommend them! Read on to learn how to make your own.

What you'll need:
  • the backs of two legal pads (or some thin cardboard)
  • photos
  • cardstock for the pages
  • patterned paper (to add some embellishments)
  • stickers (optional)
  • felt (about 1/2 a yard)
  • twine or ribbon
  • strong hole punch or ice pick to make the holes
  • scissors
  • x-acto knife
  • ruler
  • hot glue
  • pencil

Instead of showing you all of the steps I took to actually create the book, I've decided to attach the video I followed. This step-by-step video makes it easy.

As you can see, I decided to make my scrapbook square. Obviously, you can make it any size or shape you like but I thought the square photos looked nice in a square book.

And here is a shot of each page. I put the book together in chronological order.

So there you have it! Our road trip scrapbook! I can't wait to make another one!
