My how times have changed! Gone are the days of patiently waiting for our film to be developed. Gone are the days of scouring over each photograph to pick the best ones for our photo albums. Instead, we grab our phones and go to the cloud to enjoy our pictures. There’s something nostalgic about flipping through page after page of photos, so let’s create a unique take on the “one time” popular photo album.
- Patterned paper tape
- Mini Clothespins
- E6000 Glue
- Chalkboard Tag
- Chalk or Paint Pen
- Adhesive Back Velcro Tabs
- Choose a frame that is the same size or smaller than the book. Paint the frame and let dry. If the frame has a stand on the back, remove it.
- Add patterned paper tape to the frame.
- Place Velcro tabs to the back of the frame. This will make it easy to remove the frame to change the photograph. By placing both sides of the Velcro to the frame, you can ensure that it will line up correctly on the book. Press firmly to allow the adhesive side of the Velcro the stick to the book.
- Glue a clothespin onto the top of the frame using E6000. Clothespins can be found in the craft store in a variety of colors, however, you may paint one if you’d like.
- Let the kids get involved! Give them strips of the patterned paper tape to add photos to the pages of the book. The paper tape can be easily removed if you’d like to change or reposition the photos.
- Name the album by writing on a chalkboard tag with either chalk or a paint pen. Insert the tag into the clothespin.
