Here is an easy way to make use of all those cell phone photos!
March is a special month for me. This marks one year of adopting my bestest friend in the world: JayJay! He came to me at a time in my life when I really needed a friend. You can read the full story of how we came together here. As I look over the past year, I couldn’t be happier with my decision to adopt him.
I thought it would be fun to “commemorate” our friendship with all my favorite photos from the past year. I found this idea on Pinterest for an accordion photo book and though it would be a perfect project for this idea!
Here is what you will need:
Four or Five different Scrapbooking pages
10-15 of your favorite photos
Scissors, Adhesive, and Markers
Project Time: in an afternoon
Project Difficulty: Easy Peasy
Project budget: around $10 (unless you use your stash)
First, fold the scrapbooking paper in half. Then adhere the back of one page to the front of another. Continue this until you have glued all the pages together to create one long page.
Print off all the photos that you want to use and cut them to size. Now, just go crazy!
I had so much fun decorating. I looked at it as almost a timeline of all the fun things JayJay and I have done together over the last year. You can make a theme throughout the book or make each page stand alone. Add text, draw pictures, glitter, whatever you want!
When I was all done decorating, I added a ribbon to tie it closed.
Have fun with it!
