How to Make a Chipboard Bridal Shower Scrapbook

Updated on August 2, 2012

A handmade bridal shower scrapbook album makes the perfect gift because not only is it handmade, it is an extremely special way to ensure that the most memorable moments of the day are captured and cherished forever.

What You Need:

To create your front and back cover, punch three evenly spaced holes in your 8x8” book boards. Punching these holes will be slightly more difficult than punching the interior chipboard simply due to the weight of the book board covers. Once the holes have been punched, decoupage your front and back cover with bridal-themed scrapbook designer paper. For this particular album, I used paper intended specifically for bridal showers. The background of the paper includes words such as “bachelorette” “bride” “girlfriends” and more, a perfect starting point for a project such as this.

Once your covers are complete, set them aside to dry and begin your interior pages. Your interior pages can be decorated much like you would with any premade album. I used 8x8” black cardstock for the background of my interior pages and decorated them with girly and wedding-themed papers, flowers, embellishments, designs and stamps. Consider the size of your photos when making your pre-made mats, and don’t forget to include specific layouts for the cutting of the cake and the opening of gifts. Including journaling spaces is a nice touch so that the bride can add her own thoughts about the included photos.

Once your interior pages are complete, repeat the hole-punching technique. By now, your front and back cover should be more than dry enough to bind your project together. To do so, use 1” binder clips. These binder clips are inexpensive and can be found at most office supply stores.

Your front cover can be decorated any way you would like. For this cover, I stamped an image of a bridal gown and watercolor painted it to match the look and feel of the album. Other ideas include using chipboard letters or embellishments, or creating a cover from cardstock that includes the bride-to-be’s name, the location of the bridal shower and the date of the event.
