i’m making an ‘international scrapbook’ for a business class, and it needs to be creative. i don’t want to go crazy overboard with this, but if anyone has general ideas out there that might seem original and creative, that would be awesome.

    Go to Jo-Ann’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby and look at their scrapbook sections. Even Wal-Mart and Target have stickers and papers for scrapbooking. You can find paper packs with patterns that have a travel theme or, if you want to use plain colors, you can find all kinds of pre-cut paper shapes. In the stickers look for Jolee’s that have a travel theme or an international theme that match countries you’re working on. Use coordinating alphabet stickers for titles. Look around and see what kind of ideas you get. You can also go to a scrapbook store if there’s one near you and see if there are any special papers. (Don’t make a huge investment there, just get ideas.)

    You could make your scrapbook into a suitcase. If you can find a small one, you could have your pages inside, or even make your pages into big post cards–pictures on one side and descriptions on the back. Or you could make the pages into the shapes of what you’d take on your trip with you (specific clothing for each country).

    Good luck!

    heres the cheapest way i can think of—
    FIRST OFF, make an 8.5×11 or 8×8 book, they are smaller and easier to make
    go to your local Travel Agent or look online at Chambers of Commerce (Tourism Boards).
    Print out 3 or 4 pictures from each country for each 2 page layout. 1 could be a landmark, 1 a Native Dress, 1 a Festival/ Cultural Holiday or Modern scene
    add a Mat to each picture. Lets say this 2 page spread is for Ireland OK, so, your 3 pictures are a Kilted Warrior, Blarney Castle, and a photo of the rolling hills. Mats would look great in tan, cream, even a green.
    Use a small version of Ireland’s flag, and draw or print out a few shamrocks, a sillhouette of Ireland, and the word Ireland in a Celtic looking font.
    This is so much cheaper than using all those stickers. It only costs Printer Ink, and you can print just outlines of images and color them with colored pencils or markers.
    REMEMBER- match your pages to your photos.
    The cardstock (heavy background paper) can be found for 59 cents per sheet (12×12) or in a whole pack for much cheaper
