Use Easter items for backgrounds

The colors of the season make for great backgrounds. Create colorful photos by taking close-up pictures of Easter-themed items, such as jelly beans, grass, dyed eggs or spring flowers. Use these images instead of patterned paper as backgrounds, borders or accents on your pages.

Many avid scrapbookers have lots of scraps of various papers leftover from other projects. An Easter-themed scrapbook is a great chance to do some spring cleaning by using up those scraps. Whatever scraps of paper you have, whether patterned or solid colored, use them to cut out Easter eggs. You can get a way with using many different paper types that might not usually go together because they’ll be unified by the common egg shape. These look great as borders or embellishments on your Easter scrapbooking pages.

Grass photo border

Cut slits in a strip of green construction paper to look like grass. This makes a cute border for an image, especially if you have a nice photo of little ones searching outside for eggs.

Who needs Easter stickers when you can decorate your scrapbook with a fluffy friend?

Press and pull a cotton ball to get the desired shape and puffiness or flatness. Cut a small circle out of cardboard or cardstock and glue the cotton ball to the circle. Glue eyes, whiskers and a nose (a hole-punched piece of cardstock makes a nice size) on to the cotton ball to mimic a bunny’s face. Glue on ears cut from cardstock. Use as an embellishment in your Easter scrapbook!
