Scrapbooking is a fun hobby anyone can get into, even if you don't consider yourself particularly crafty. So grab some photos and card stock and prepare to scrap!
You Will Need
- Selection of ribbon sliders
- Acrylic paint
- Paper or other fibers
- Acid-free sliders (optional)
Choose the material you want for your slider. Sliders can be made from metal, chipboard, plastic, or paper. Some are embellished with faux pearls and crystals -- perfect for a little added bling.
Custom paint them
Use acrylic paint to paint your slider to custom match it to your layout in your scrapbook.
Get the right shape
Get sliders in a variety of fun shapes to enhance your layout. Shapes include hearts, stars, leaves, and flowers.
Choose the right size
Choose the right size slider for your ribbon since you slide the ribbon through the cutouts in the slider. The larger the cutouts, the larger the ribbon that will fit through it.
Use sliders not only for ribbon, but to dress up plain pieces of paper or other fibers you want to use.
