Wondering what to do with the old photos that you recently came across? Create beautiful 12x12 vintage scrapbook
pages. Here are some easy steps to follow:
♥ Choose a 12 x 12 sheet of a scrapbook page that has a vintage style 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. Use black and white photos here if possible!
♥ 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 scrapbook page and embellish with old buttons, lace, and other antique looking trinkets.
