How to Label & Identify Scrapbooking Albums

The pages of your scrapbooking album are eye-catching and attractive. Apply the same level of creativity to the cover to make each album unique and easy to identify.


  • Step 1: Cut out the protector Cut the page protector to the size of the spine of your scrapbook album.
  • TIP: Use a straight edge to cut.
  • Step 2: Decorate Decorate the protector to match the rest of the album, using stickers, ribbon, and paper.
  • Step 3: Label with letters Label the cover and spine of the album with a name and the date. Use iron-on letters or rub-on letters.
  • Step 4: Slide protector into the spine Slide the page protector into the spine of the scrapbooking album.
  • Step 5: Add a photo Add a photograph that fits the theme of the album to the cover or spine to identify the contents. If your album does not have a built-in photo holder, glue the photo in place with a hot glue gun. Now enjoy preserving memories for years.
