Tips & Ideas

In my last marriage I was blessed to be a stepmother. My husband kept practically everything his boys (4 & 6) had brought home from school in a big box in our closet.  From having gone through this with my son I knew that eventually most of it would just get thrown away and what a shame it is.

So I bought a 3″ binder and some plastic protective sheets from the local office supply store.  Covered the binder in a sports themed fabric and glued on letters spelling “Happy Fathers Day” and the year. The boys and I sat down with the box of school stuff and decided what should go in the book.  We used a combination of scrap-booking techniques and the plastic protector pages and quickly filled the book with that years memories.

My husband was so touched he cried!
