If you love scrapbooking, then you will love these scrapbooking gift ideas and scrapbooking gift basket ideas, as you can create gifts for your family and friends and have fun at the same time.
The perfect gift is one that you have actually made yourself. It just adds that personal touch and lets someone know you appreciate them. Also, packaging a gift in a basket, just makes it extra special, as the presentation is so special.
Gifts you can make by using scrapbooking procedures can be things like special cards, present boxes, mini booklets supplied with special pictures, or a framed collage.
Not only will you impress that special individual in your life with your skills, but it will normally be a special creation that they will be able to treasure forever and remember you each time they look at it. Here are a couple of interesting scrapbooking gift ideas for you to attempt.
Scrapbooking Gift Basket Ideas
Mini booklets or albums can easily be made from scratch or bought from your craft shop made up already, so you just need to include your pics. Mini albums make remarkable gifts for Father’s or Mother’s day, a Grandparent’s birthday, or even a special valentines present.
They are quick to do, as you only put one or two photographs on a page and then decorate or embellish.
You can do a scrapbooking gift basket by simply organizing the album in a basket with some champagne and chocolates. Or you can make it a kit for that crafty person in your life by putting the pictures and embellishments separately so they can assemble it themselves.
Present or Gift Boxes
Gift boxes that you decorate can be used to keep your mementos or jewelry in. You could possibly also fill a decorated scrapbooking gift box by having special pictures or poems that mean something to the person that you are giving it to.
I once was gifted with a beautiful gift box that opened out concertina style with photographs and decorations of a special occasion we had gone to. It is something that I will treasure forever.
The Gift Of Creativity
Why not give them a new hobby to try?
I for one would love to receive this awesome gift. It allows you to do your own album of special memories.
The set on the left comes with paper and embellishments included so they can create and scrap to their heart’s content.

Scrapbooking and card-making methods are very similar and making cards is a fantastic method to make use of all your leftover scraps from your scrapbooking projects.
A homemade card is consistently more recognized than a bought one, and you will certainly save a packet.
With this kit, you can either gift it like that and they can create their own cards, or you can make some creative cards to give to your friends.
A beautiful scrapbook page that has actually been framed makes a remarkable present.
Grandparents always delight in getting pictures of their grandchildren, so why not do a beautiful page of all the finest images as well as frame it by having a frame to compliment the decor in their homes?
A wonderful way to give a creative gift is to make a collage of all your recipient’s favorite memories, and then photostat them onto a card the size of a placemat. Laminate and voila, you have a placemat that can entertain you while you eat.
Make a set of six or eight, and put them in a basket with some serviettes, salt and pepper, and condiments, or even a recipe book, and voila you have an original scrapbooking gift basket they will love.
Scrapbooking some pretty recipe cards and doing a kitchen gift basket with the ingredients needed to make the recipes is also a great gift for somebody who likes to spend time cooking up a storm in their kitchen.
You can either decorate your own favorite recipe card or embellish some with stickers and pictures and leave them blank for the recipient of the gift to fill in.
Another one of those beautiful scrapbooking gift ideas that can be made, is a wall clock. All you need to do is purchase the kit from your craft shop, and it usually comes with a mechanism to make the clock keep time.
Place the pictures of your choice backing the face of the clock and embellish them as you wish.
All you need to do then is have the clock framed and there you have a unique and effective gift for someone special.
When you make somebody a present, make sure that if it is a clock or framed picture that it will blend in with the decor and color scheme in their house.
It is no use giving somebody a purple clock if their house is all done in mutual colors, or your clock might end up hiding up in a wardrobe for the rest of its life.
