Introduction:Did you know that Miley Cyrus likes to scrapbook? She doesn't seem like the arts-and-crafts type of person when she is twerking and cavorting in public. A lot of teens like to scrapbook. It is a very old craft that is a hot new craze. Here are some topics that your teen may want to scrapbook about.
Teens have idols! Fifty years ago it was the Beatles. Today, it may be Dakota Fanning or another idol. Girls have kept this type of scrapbooks for decades. With modern embellishments, these scrapbooks can be works of art.
Most teens -- especially the girls -- love clothing. Scrapbooking their fave designs can be fun. Scrapbooking stores offer gingerbread boy and girl die cuts or cut outs that can be fun to embellish. Other ideas include printouts of Internet advertisements for top designers. Teens can do "selfies" and take other photos and make scrapbook pages with them.
What teen doesn't dream of having the most fashionable room? Through scrapbooking, a teen can play with color combinations, design styles, and furniture options. This may be the perfect hobby for someone who is considering becoming an interior decorator or architect.
Yeah, you can make a scrapbook based on print ads! Your teen may prefer to pick a certain type of ad, such as clothing and fashion ads, food ads, and even pet food ads, or save a random selection of ads. With embellishments, journaling, and other add-ons, the scrapbook can be a treasure to pass down to future generations.
Whether your teen writes his or her own material or copies his or her favorite writers' work, a collection of stories or poems will be interesting. Encourage him or her to embellish the pages. Modern three-dimensional flourishes add a fun touch. For example, try adding silk flowers (or ones from the dollar store) to a poem about flower gardens or a personal photo to illustrate a piece. Imagine taking a picture of a tree to decorate Joyce Kilmer's "Trees."
Scrapbooking has provided fun for people for years. One of my husband's relatives has kept a scrapbook of family obituaries since she was a teenager. The scrapbook is an important piece of family history. Today, scrapbooking has gone digital as well as still being a popular hands-on craft. With digital scrapbooking, a person can share movies, embed links, and do other stuff that would be impossible with a traditional one.
