Scrapbooking Sleepover Party
Age: Teenagers (13+)
What craft tells you to go out and have a great time with friends as step one? This one! Plan a fun event for you and your friends and don’t forget your camera. Stop on your way home to develop your film (order enough copies for everyone!). Then stay up all night scrapbooking your event. With a few simple supplies and an inexpensive scrapbook, you can make memories that last a life time.
What you'll need:
- Any size scrapbook
- Colorful papers
- Photo adhesive tabs
- Mementos from your event (tickets, score cards, logo napkins, etc.)
How to make it:
- Go out and have a great time with friends, but don’t forget your camera!
- Stop by the one-hour photo lab on your way home to get photos developed.
- Shop for scrapbooking supplies (paper, stickers, adhesive, etc) while you wait for your photos.
- Go home and get to work!
- Crop your photos to cut out any background that would take away from the photo’s main subject. (Be careful not to cut out too much.)
- Arrange your photos using adhesive tabs. Add stickers and embellishments and immortalize your event! (Hint: For items that may not be photo safe, place them inside a plastic sleeve or under contact paper.)
- Write about the photos on your pages so you don’t forget a single thing.
- Chronological Order: Place photos in order from beginning to end, so it will be easy to relive your event over and over again!
- Alphabet Book: A is for ABBY who had the highest score at our bowling party! B is for the BROWNIES we ate when we came home! C is for my CAR that was filled to the max with friends! . . . and so on.
- Rainbow Pages: Use red papers and stickers for the first page of your scrapbook, orange for the second, then yellow, then green, and so on. Repeat until your book is complete.
- Story Book: After you finish your pages, put your heads together and write a funny story about your event, type it up, and print it out. Cut and paste your words into the same spot on each page so your book reads like a “Once Upon a Time” story.
