TIPsy Tuesday - Corral School Papers
There are lots of strategies for preserving children's artwork, stories they have written, and other momentos from their school days. I've seen scrapbook pages where the artwork was scanned and then shown in a small size on a scrapbook page.
For Dillon's book, I make pocket pages. This year, I did one page for his school work - mostly stories he wrote. To hold my pockets in place, I use Creative Memories Photo tape. It really sticks so my pockets don't come loose.
The other two page spread shown above includes pockets to hold reward certificates, grade sheets and other items Jaime has accumulated.
To see what is inside the pocket, make it with Vellum or transparancy film. First secure your transparancy or vellum in place with removable adhesive in the center. You can then also sew around your pockets. Remove the removable adhesive and embellish as desired.
Just a few ideas on corraling all the cute things you receive from a child or grandchild. Thanks for stopping by!
