If you want to create a scrapbook album to commemorate a specific school year, you may be wondering what to use for a school scrapbooking border. Sure, most people use those block letters or school buses and these work just fine but if you want to be creative you can come up with so many other scrapbooking school pages and things to use to help you celebrate the school year.
For example, think specifically of that child. What kinds of activities do they like to do during the school year or what is their favorite academic subject? You aren’t limited with scrapbook layout pages. If they like science then use science-related objects as a school scrapbooking border. This could include atoms and molecules or beakers. You can even try equations. If they enjoy reading or creative writing then books with classic literature titles may work. If they excel in music then of course musical notes or their favorite instrument can also make for a great border. Kids into sports might inspire you to use sports items as a school scrapbooking border. Bats, balls, racquets, and even sports shoes can make great items!
Another creative idea for a school scrapbooking border is to use different scrapbook poems and phrases in different fonts and typestyles and use those as a border. There are many phrases and sayings you can use, but you many want to ask your children for ideas. Of course the phrases that kids like to use do change constantly so do not assume you know what is cool in kid lingo today- be sure to ask your children! Getting your children involved in designing a school scrapbooking border can also be a fun and challenging project for the both of you to do together.
Remember too that you don’t even need to use school-related items for a school scrapbooking border. Sometimes you can just use a good color scheme like primary colors for elementary school chlidren or the school colors of your kids’ school for older high school students. If you carry the same color scheme throughout your album pages, you can tie everything together and have a terrific looking finished product. You might also try using small die cuts to attach together on your page layout as a school scrapbooking border rather than just something you write or draw on the page. This could be mini books, apple shapes or small brick school houses that you decorate and then attach to the page as a border.
