Scrapbooking: Part 2

In continuation of Scrapbooking: Part 1, today I’ve posted a few more pictures about preserving memorabilia and other tokens from a trip into the scrapbook. Tokens can be things like tickets, receipts etc, anything that serves as a keepsake to remind you of what you did on your trip or at that special event.

For starters, try sticking them directly onto the page, this can look great if you have a printed bright background. You can write an annotation describing where you got it from and what it was used for…

If you have a brochure or double sided printed media, flaps are a great way to display them on a page. Just cut out a triangular clock of card and glue the edges onto the paper, leaving space in the middle to slide something into it like a slot. Make a small slit down the middle  if you need more space…

Use flaps for flight tickets because wet glue tends to seep through the ticket and create ugly blotches, thus ruining your memorabilia. So tickets are best stored in slots or flaps, same goes for receipts…
Random shopping tags…

Keep creamers, sugar packets and even napkins from places that you’ve been out to eat…

Be sure to keep any sort of printed article or ticket such as parking tickets, transportation tokens etc…

 You can even keep pieces of foreign currency in the scrapbook!

Use different colors and patterns to mix and match…
