Scrapbooking is an excellent way to capture and preserve all your favorite 4-H activities. This introductory project is designed for youth of all ages with limited experience in scrapbooking. Youth are required to complete the activities outlined in the project book.
To be successful in the 4-H Scrapbooking project participants will need to attend workshops and complete their record book. The final workshop will go over recording this project in the 4-H'ers record book.
Supplies needed to be successful in this project are:
Pictures – lots and lots of pictures.
Scrapbook – this can be a handmade book or it can be a premade book.
Additional scrapbook pages that fit your specific scrapbook – these will need to be lignan and acid free pages. Most premade books come this way.
Photo sticker squares or running scrapbook tape.
Embellishments to create memorable pages for your book.
Other items like unique cutting scissors, pens, markers, etc. will be provided by the project superintendent.
And above all you will need to purchase the project book Scrapbooking – A 4-H Guide to Preserving Memories.
