5 QUIRKY SCRAPBOOK IDEAS

Scrapbooking is one of the most meaningful trends to emerge. Despite the fact that we now live in a very digital society, it is nice to hold an actual book in your hands from time to time. While weddings, newborns and anniversary make for one of the most common scrapbook topics, here are a few ideas that will help you think outside of the box.

#1 Business Card Scrapbook
This is perfect for those whose work makes up a huge part of their life. That doesn’t mean life is drab and boring – for many workaholics attend to their careers with genuine passion. Collecting business card is not only for the working class or the entrepreneurs either. Travellers and foodies can also look into gathering cards from meaningful restaurants and hotels.

#2 Wax Rubbings Scrapbook
Wax rubbing is a easy and unique technique to record objects of interest you come across in your life. What you would need is a slab of wax and tracing paper – both of which are easily obtainable in art supplies shops. Suggestions for objects to trace are interesting knives, spoons, room number or items of nature.

#3 Schooling Scrapbook
Scrapbook is a much better place than your musty old drawers to keep your elementary school artwork and awards safe. In fact, even past failed exams make for an interesting addition to a school days scrapbook. If you are a parent, do your children a favor and make a schooling scrapbook for them! This will leave them with a ton of memory to look back on.

#4 Literal “Scrap” book
Not all scrapbooks need a distinct theme. In fact, if you are a person with a multi-faceted life dotted with an extensive tangent of hobbies and interest – why not record it all? The “scrap” scrapbook can include photographs, music sheets, drawings or anything that suits your interest. Aim to create an interesting mosaic of memories.

#5 Map Scrapbook

If you are not a photographer or an artist, considering making your scrapbook with maps. This works particularly well with a travel theme. Also, you never know – these precious maps may become extinct one day.
