You will need
- Specialty pens
- Color copies (optional)
- Page protectors (optional)
Step 1 Choose an album Pick a scrapbook to use for your father’s day album. Find one with your dad’s favorite colors and a blank cover you can decorate later.
Step 2 Go to the archives Collect photos and memorabilia associated with your father. Divide the items into themed categories to make a variety of unique pages.
Use color copies of photos if you’re worried about ruining the originals.
Step 3 Stock up on stock Buy cardstock to use as frames for your pictures. Pick up a few different styles, so they pop against the pages.
Step 4 Accessorize Find related accessories to add — craft stores carry a wide variety of stickers, stamps, and 3-D decorations, many with father’s day themes.
Step 5 Make the album Assemble your pages by cutting, pasting, and matting your items. Use acid-free, waterproof, and fade-proof pens to write messages and add details for your father on each page of the memory album.
Use page protectors to preserve your scrapbook over time.
Step 6 Decorate the cover Write a title on the cover of your memory album and decorate it using a particularly meaningful or funny photo. Then tie a ribbon around the album, give it to your dad, and bask in his adoration.
