The 5 Hottest Ideas For
Scrapbooking Your Boyfriend!
So you and your guy have been going out for a while, have done several fun things together, and you have a great photo of the two of you.
Who doesn't love scrapbooking stickers!
Scrapbook Idea 1. Create a Top Ten List of Things You Love About Him

What is it about your boyfriend that you really like? Is it his dimples when he smiles? The way he says your name? His bright blue eyes? How he calls you every day during lunch?
Make a Top Ten list of things you really love and let him know! If you rather use a shorter list so that you can write more about each thing, then use a Top Three or a Top Five list and make it a highlight of your romantic scrapbook.
Title the page as "What I Like About You!" If you have photos that go along with some of the things you like, incorporate them into your page. Be creative with scrapbooking photos. For example, if you especially like your boyfriend's smile, then crop just his cute smiling face.

Scrapbook Idea 2. Include childhood pictures of your boyfriend
If it's at all possible, ask your boyfriend's family's help if you could have copies of one or two of his childhood photos. Ask for a picture where he's kissing a family member or is receiving a kiss on the cheek, or perhaps of him handing a flower or box of candy to someone. Either way, a kid's picture is definitely a page you're going to love looking at in the future.
Scrapbook Idea 3: Childhood scrapbooking of your boyfriend
For cute scrapbook ideas for a boyfriend, adhere one or two of the photos and journal about how his love and care have grown over the years. In the bottom right corner, add a current photo of your boyfriend in a similar pose for a cute idea for your scrapbook page. Add a doodled heart for an extra personal touch.
Another idea is to ask his mother to journal about his positive personality traits that he had as a boy. To make things even livelier, add memorable pictures of him along with the photo's backstory. It's surely one of the things that you two will love to laugh about later on. Trust me.
Use vintage paper for the background. Adhere the journal entry and photos to the page. Embellish with stickers of childhood toys, hearts, and any other love-related stickers.
Scrapbook Idea 4. Highlight great accomplishments
Here's one of the hottest boyfriend scrapbook ideas. During the time of the two of you dating, what are some of your boyfriend's accomplishments?
Did he get his driver's license? A promotion at work? Built a dog house with no help from his buddies? Caught his first fish?
Whether the accomplishment is big or small, let him know how proud you are and how much you love him by creating a spread (two side-by-side pages) documenting these great accomplishments in your romantic scrapbook!
As you design your spread, include photos and other mementos that capture these special moments.
Title the page "Sooo Proud of You!" This layout will be one of your boyfriend's favorite ones, especially if you include some lighthearted accomplishments spread out in creative little sections across your scrapbook.
Scrapbook Idea 5. Relive the memories of love together
Since the time of first meeting your boyfriend, what were some of your favorite dates? Did you go to a concert or an amusement park together? Did he take you to a special restaurant? Did you get caught in the rain and you both were drenched?
Go down memory lane and reminisce the history of your relationship together with a scrapbook spread of all your favorite pictures. Make a creative page by putting your dates together and camping trips or long-distance travels on separate pages. It's a great idea to stick a certain theme on every page to make it more coherent. You'll love the result!
Create a scrapbook layout that includes photos and journal entries about these special memories. Include tickets and stubs, flower petals, a portion of a restaurant menu (print it from the website), and other items.
Idea 5. Express your love
Out of the many scrapbooking ideas for a boyfriend, the hottest one is to write a poem to your boyfriend. Not much of a poetry writer? That's okay! The important thing is that the words come from your heart. Not every poem has to have rhyming words.
But if you're really stumped, it's fine to get a suitable Valentine's Day poem online or any romantic poetry that really fits your relationship well and put them on your scrapbook. After all, it's the thought that counts and it will definitely best describe how you truly feel.
Express your love in your layouts
Here's an idea:
Grab a piece of scrap paper and just begin to write how you feel about your boyfriend. Let him know how much he means to you and what life would be like without him. How romantic, right? Try to keep your romantic poem to 300 words or less.
Idea 5. Express your love
Choose a romantic scrapbook background that supports your poem. Most craft stores will offer a wide variety of "romance" paper–little hearts, XOXO, couple holding hands, teddy bears embracing, etc.
Write your poem on a 5×7 sheet of paper. Adhere the paper onto a neutral piece of card stock and cover the poem with clear vellum.
Depending on your background paper, decide where to best position the poem. Include one photo of you and your boyfriend either kissing or holding hands. This romantic page will surely make his heart melt this time!
No matter what you do, a romantic scrapbook for your boyfriend is always a good idea to give as a gift. It can be a special holiday present or even a going away present when you start entering a long-distance relationship (especially if you're going to different colleges or states because of work). A scrapbook entails a lot of effort and love, making this a truly heartfelt gift to give to your boyfriend.
