Years from now, the events that take place will just be a memory from the past. Historical battles sites and castles have become tourist attractions. The actions of people are recorded in history books and lectured to the young.
The life of an average Joe may not matter to the public but this is something you can look back on and smile about by flipping through the pages of a scrapbook.
A scrapbook kit can be purchased at your local bookstore. This will include a small album, some colored paper, stickers, embellishments and some instructions on how to begin.
Those who have been doing this for a long time don't have to buy a kit but instead buy each of the items separately to add variation to the project.
The scrapbook should last for years so this should be made of strong material. The most important thing is to have an album. The bookstore has these in many different sizes and you can choose the one best for you. Magnetic albums aren't the best to use since they have been proven to cause damage to the contents in the long term.
A good pair of scissors and a cutter should always be around. This will make it easy to cut a photo or something out of a magazine. If you aren't sure about the layout on a certain page, there are two options on how to proceed. The first would be to use a dispenser and put tape on scratch paper or pin the cutouts first on a corkboard.
Making a scrapbook may take days or even weeks to finish. You can take some time to look at it before making a final decision. When a page is ready, you should use glue from the kit to put everything into place.
Scrapbooks aren't just about sticking things together. You can also make them interesting by putting some lettering on them. There are packs that hold numbers and the alphabet that are available in different colors that will also add some spice to the scrapbook.
You should also use colored pens and crayons. You can use this to add other things that come to mind later on during the creation of the scrapbook.
