Best Holiday Tradition: Create a Holiday Scrapbook
When it’s cold outside, stay in for some scrapbooking fun. From glitter to ribbons to snowflake cutouts, this tradition is sure to bring everyone closer together this holiday season, presented by our friends at Folgers®.
A Year in Pictures
- Pull together the family and talk about the moments, memories and activities that meant the most to you over the past year. Write them down so you don’t forget.
- Go through your photos and pick one “focal point” picture for each month of the year. Once those are selected, pick a few supporting photos that help complete the story.
- For each memory you pick to immortalize, have a family member jot down how he or she felt at the time or how it feels to look back. Handwrite on white card stock or print out in a favorite decorative font.
- Before adhering anything to paper, make a mock layout first to make sure it all fits. Do this as a family or have each family member design a page.
- When decorating holiday pages, consider using bits of wrapping paper, gift tags, flat ornaments, ribbon and creative paper cutouts available at most craft and paper stores.
