- What does your Papa like? What is his hobby? These are the memorabilia pieces you are looking for - a ticket stub, music sheet, his favorite brand of Golf/Fishing/Sport tag, a feather, a coin, stamps, something that shows his favorite past time in a very specific way.
- Find the heroes of dad's story and get those photos in. It might be his spouse, kids, family members he feels most connected with, a tight friendship circle, you...- put them in!
- Ask those people from item #2 to write your dad something and incorporate it into your Father's Day scrapbook.
- Don't be shy - ask around for his best memory, best thing dad did and find a visual way to show it, i.e. photo, memorabilia, a line from a song.
- Whether it's a song, a verse, a line from a book, a poem, byline from an advertisement, a quote, biblical verse - find out what's the line that describes your daddy best and place it in your Father's Day scrapbook album.
- Remember the hobbies from #1? Find patterned papers that works with it. Daddy likes BBQ? - find picnic papers; Does he like Golf - find golf balls patterns. Combine it with corresponding colored card stock and you have a cohesive look.
- Yes, I saved it for last and there's a reason for it. The cover should include a hint for what's the scrapbook album is about. So if Daddy liked his last trip to Switzerland, make a cover of Swiss cheese with yellow paper and a round hole puncher; if he loves chocolate, make a cover off of his favorite chocolate wrappers and if he walks the dog daily, you can wrap his photo album with a map of your neighbourhood, marking the spots (if you know what I mean...)
Hope it helps and Happy Father's Day!
