Your kids are all excited that you’re going to help them put together an awesome scrapbooking project. Whether it was a school assignment or just something that they wanted to try out (most probably saw some of their friends’ albums and decided to pester you about having one!), you will definitely have loads of fun putting this entire project together with them.
First things first. Make sure you have a list of items that you need to get. As with every parent out there, they are always fighting for time some how or another. While spending time with your kids is a worthwhile investment, one of the ways to help you save some time instead of wasting it is to make sure that you get the right scrapbook tools for the job. Don’t go overboard though and buy up the entire store. Hence the list is important. This is of course for parents who haven’t yet figured out what they wanted to put together.
Now for folks who already know what they want to create and put together, getting the specific scrapbook tools will be pretty easy. Don’t forget to pick up a variety of beautiful scrapbook paper as well. These will come in handy in case you need to create borders or background. Some may just want to wrap their entire album with colorful paper.
Anyway, the basic tools would be a pair of scissors, a role of double-sided tape, color pens and pencils, different types of hole punchers and some paper cutting knife. Of course the more complicated the project, the more specific type of tools you will require to save you time. Need I elaborate that with the right tools to get the right task done, it will save you plenty of sanity as well.
