Jeri Christmas: Homemade Holiday Scrapbook
I have always been a crafty person. I love making things, and I really love giving something homemade or baked to my friends and family during the holidays. I guess that's just one more reason why I'm known as Jeri Christmas!
Several years ago, I was invited to a scrapbook party. You would think that this was a party where you actually sat down and completed a scrapbook. Wrong. At this party, we learned how to make expandable scrapbooks! This knowledge has been super valuable! Our youth department at church made and sold these as a fundraiser for a ski trip, and we sold a TON of them!
Here at the radio station for the last several years, we have a luncheon and class to make your own Christmas Scrapbook. This year, I took pictures and videos to share with our listeners!
Here's a list of what you need to make these scrapbooks:
- 2 pieces of 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 heavy card stock. (I use framing chipboard, I have them cut it in 6 1/4 strips, and I use a paper cutter to cut those strips into 6 1/4 squares)
- 2 pieces of scrapbook paper (any size as long as it will cover the back of the boards about a half inch)
- double sided tape
- 3 pieces of scrapbook paper (65lb)
- about a yard of ribbon
These books can be as simple or as elaborate as you like, depending on your crafting skills. Several of my co-workers made more than one yesterday.
If the pictures above were a bit confusing, here's a video to help!
Pro tip: If you want to gift these during the holidays, why not include a disposable camera? You can usually get one for around ten bucks. What a cool idea, especially for a holiday party memory, a family Christmas, or a birthday dinner!
