You Will Need
- Photo pencil
- Photo editing software
- Digital camera
- Tissue (optional)
Consider your options
Determine how many photos will fit on a page and whether to crop an imperfect photo.
Think creatively. Photos may be cut in squares, rectangles, ovals or circle shapes, and into stars or heart shapes.
Cut hard shapes
Cut a square or rectangle by placing your straightedge over the photo and marking your shape with your photo pencil. Cut inside the lines with the scissors.
Use a template
Make or buy a template to trace any desirable shape onto your photo with the photo pencil, and use scissors to cut the shape inside the lines.
Combine cutting techniques
Combine cutting techniques to create special effects or to silhouette an object in your photo.
Crop digitally with camera features or photo editing software. Whether you prefer to use low- or high-tech methods, remember that the most treasured scrapbooks are always made with love.
