I saw a fabulous idea once on Becky Higgins’ Instagram. See had scanned her child’s art work, the kind with lots of construction paper and glue, which turned it into a flat image. She then was able to print the image and slide it into one of the larger page protectors. Voila! The artwork is saved without all the bulk! I thought this was a great idea and made a mental note to remember this for the future.
But then this past weekend, LM decided he wanted to color so I gave him a few crayons and let him go to town. While they ended up in his mouth a lot, they did make it to the paper and mommy and daddy added some doodles too. It was such a sweet memory that I didn’t want to just discard it. That’s when I got an idea! I’ll turn it into a card for the scrapbook!
Scan the artwork to your computer.
For this one, the color was very muted so I adjusted the levels and contrast to see it better.
Resize your image. I wanted it to go in one of the bigger slots so I got it as close to a 4X6 as I could.
Print, cut, and insert!
