Wondering what to do with the old photos that you recently came across? Create a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout that has a vintage look
to it. Here are some easy steps to follow:
♥ Choose a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook that has a vintage vibe to it. It might be a crackled green paper, a page with lace, or wrinkled cardboard.
♥ Turn the paper over and trace a 3 x 3 inch square template on three or four random places. Carefully poke a hole through each square and cut the paper from the hole to one of the edges of the square. Retrace the square several times with a pen or pencil until you're able to carefully rip the square from the paper. When you rip, it will leave a ragged edge which is what you want.
♥ Center a photo, facedown, over each square and tape into place.
♥ Flip the scrapbook paper over and adhere it to the scrapbooking page backing. Add a border to the page. You can use a simple solid border made out of cardstock, or any pre-purchased scrapbook borders.
♥ Add a title to the page and embellish with old buttons, lace, and other antique looking trinkets.
When creating a breathtaking 12 x 12 scrapbook layout, it truly begins with what inspires you! If it's a particular photo, consider whether you want to use it as the only photo for a layout or if there are additional photos that you want to put along with it. If you're inspired by beautiful embellishments, play around with grouping different items together and then decide what else you can add to the page.
