During the final semester of high school I got the idea that I should make scrapbooks for a few of my closest friends as a little going away gift. It was so much fun to go back through and print out all my favorite memories, because I rarely actually print out pictures. It took me weeks to get all 5 done, but in the end it was so worth it because everyone loved their gift! I wanted to share a few of my favorite pages with you guys because after I shared that I was working on a big project on Instagram I got a few requests to share the final product!
** just a little note that I did cover up faces just for this, but in the actual scrapbooks they obviously are not covered up 🙂
I got a few comments from my friends about how I put the dates in for almost every picture. It did take a lot more time to go back and figure out the day but honestly it was worth it to me because it is so fun to remember the exact date.
Also, if you are planning to do this or something similar, I always recommend waiting until a good sale or until you have coupons. I bought the albums at Hobby Lobby and was able to get them for a great price, and then I waited until paper was on sale at Michaels to stock up!
Would you enjoy getting a book of memories for a present? What is the best going away present you received? Share in the comments!
