DIY No-Glue Scrapbook (by Martha Stewart)
The receipts, ticket stubs, maps, and postcards you collect on a trip paint a picture of vacation fun, but assembling an album can be a chore. To simplify the process, fill a three-ring binder with plastic sleeves meant for business and baseball cards. Slide souvenirs into compartments, or if they don’t fit, use a paper clip to attach them to a pocket. Trim maps, and slide them into the binder’s outside sleeves (even on the spine).
DIY Folding Travelogues (by Martha Stewart)
Enlarge photos from a recent trip and make foldouts: an accordion type, formed by taping photocopies together, or an origami-style version, using a bone folder to make sharp creases. These inserts, pasted into an ordinary journal, add an element of surprise to the story of the trip and convey some of the city’s grandeur.
DIY Map Scrapbook (by Martha Stewart)
Relive your favorite travel memories by creating keepsakes from your family vacation photos, souvenirs, postcards, and other memorabilia.
Give the maps that guided you to favorite destinations a second life in a scrapbook. The printed papers become colorful and fitting backdrops for vacation mementos (and using them is easier than folding the map itself).
Anonymous asked: can you state some DIY crafts or ideas for mother's day? thanks!
Well I highly recommend checking out truebluemeandyou’s exceptional DIY/craft blog. I’m sure trueblue’ll undoubtably post a good few DIY mother’s day themed tutorials (if they haven’t already done so!) As for mother’s day paper/book crafts, why not try designing your own handmade pop-up card, or some sort of homemade photo album/scrapbook? Alternatively, another nice idea might be to get a plain book/album, personalise the cover and then fill the pages with sealed envelopes containing memories/momentos/individual messages addressed to your mother - such as ‘Open me on a rainy day’ or ‘Open me after one of our stupid fights’ etc! x
