Creating Your Hen Party ScrapbookPosted by Hay Brunsdon on June 7 2017.
Why not commemorate your day with a handmade hen party scrapbook. You’ll be able to look back on it in years to come and reminisce about days gone by. Have your glue and scissors at the ready because it’s time to channel your inner Martha Stewart and get creative. There’s no such thing as too much glitter!
Scrapbooking has become a dying art now that Facebook and our social media accounts allow us to create instant photo albums with the click of a button. Our photos can be uploaded in minutes and all our friends can access them which is absolutely brilliant.
However, it also allows those long lost acquaintances we met whilst travelling /on holiday/at school but can’t remember the last time we actually spoke in person to see them as well. That’s not to say we don’t love having a peek at everyone else’s photos on fb because we absolutely do, but why not make a photo album that is tangible.
Why not make something you can touch and pass round to friends who refuse to jump on the Facebook bandwagon and something you can browse through and use to reminisce about the last days of your single life. Free your photos from your computer screen, extract them from the far reaches of the internet, print them off and put them in a scrapbook.
First off you will need a suitable notebook which you can find in most high street stationers. Next up the tools of all budding scrapbookers – scissors, glue, a ruler, felt tip pens, stickers, ribbons, tissue paper, stamps and anything else that you can stick in. Once you’re ready to begin it’s time to decide on a layout for the page. Odd numbers normally look better so choose 1, 3 or 5 photos and arrange them on the page, mounting some photos on card and making sure you leave enough space for captions, speech bubbles and stickers. Why not go all out and make little pull outs and envelopes to tuck notes into.
We say if you’re going to do this, do it properly. Scrapbooking is serious business people. Once you’re done, sit back, admire your handiwork and in years to come you can look back and use it to recollect all the memories of your party.
Whichever hen party you choose, be it pole dancing, life drawing or chocolate making, your photos of the day will look brilliant in a scrapbook. We think it’s time to put the creative skills you never knew you had to good use and create a personal memento of your hen party. Your husband-to-be may also like to have a gander at it and see what went on behind his back (although this is not strictly necessary and maybe it’s best it stays for girl’s eyes only!)
