A friend of mine told me about a book that they received as a gift that had a spot for each year's Santa picture to go in. She packs it up with her Christmas decorations each year and then unpacks it when Christmas comes around again. I thought this was a great idea, but didn't want to hunt down this book to find out that it was $30.
I decided to make my own. When living in Minnesota, I found that I really like scrapbooking. I have found that a lot of people are perfectionists when it comes to scrapbooking. I am not! Either way, this is a simple book with minimal details.
I bought a small red scrapbook at Michael's with their 40% off coupon, so I ended up getting it for about $5. I used red and green scrapbooking paper, which was also on sale, and alternated colors for each page. I had some scrapbooking stickers that I used to add a little bit of wording and the year that the picture was taken, and Ta Da, I have a Santa book that I can bring out each year and keep on my coffee table every Christmas season.
Inside Page: Added stickers with the year. If you have multiple children, you can use stickers to add their names. I used scrapbooking picture corners to add my pictures but you can use glue also.
