These scrapbooking ideas can themselves lead to having several different books for each member of the family or one book with each page representing the celebrations you had for each year. The pages do not have to be in sequence, but it would be nice to have them from the earliest to the most recent to tell the story in order.
Just looking through the pages will not only bring back many happy memories, but through the Independence Day scrapbooking ideas you will be able to document the growth of a familyas you show the children growing into teenagers and adults.
While these are just some Independence Day scrapbooking ideas you might use for a family scrapbooking project, you could also use the same theme to show the spirit or independence through historical photos.
Independence Day scrapbooking ideas just have to include the red, white and blue colour or the colour of your country's national flag to mark the occasion. You can put this color as a border around all the photos in your scrapbook.
Other Independence day scrapbooking ideas are:
Pictures of the Fireworks
Family get togethers
What game did you play?
Pictures of decorations in preparation for independence day celebration
Did you make barbeque? Then include the pictures of friends and family members that were around
Independence Day scrapbooking ideas could also include
Different colors to represent fireworks on the page above pictures of people watching the fireworks
A list of family members that gathered together to celebrate
Signatures of all the people at your celebration
Interesting little stories that grandparents might have told when reminiscing about celebrations in the past
Stickers of the American flag or your national flag interspersed throughout the pages
Your Independence day scrapbook can also show a family growing in size if you want to go back through all your photo albums and hunt out all the pictures of Independence Day celebrations through the years. Grandparents surrounded by all their children could be the first page with each page in the scrapbook showing photos and scenes from the time the children were small until they became parents themselves. This is a great way to document a family’s history through how it celebrates its country.
Of course the scenes may change from year to year, so you would have to add journaling telling where each celebration took place – maybe a different park or if you move a lot – a different state.
How ever you celebrate your Independence Day don't fail to preserve the memories.
Happy Independence day celebrations.
