Thank you for all of the encouragement on yesterday's post!
Baby mementos can take up a lot of room, and a scrapbook can take up a lot of time and materials to maintain. I mentioned it in this post, but I have a simple method for preserving memories.
I realize it may not be for everyone, but it is the perfect solution for me!
My trusty laminator is key here!
I have a stack of white card stock cut into 5x7 inch sheets. Then I affix the cards, pictures, and other flat mementos I want to keep with adhesive, laminate, hole punch it, and I'm done!
Each child has their own ring, and we have one for all of the cards we send out as a family.
It's a fun way to look at how my kiddos have grown!
Baby A has some fun things...
her sweet little footprints...
the cigar band from daddy's celebratory cigar...
and the card from her hospital bassinet. So sweet.
Because laminating is very permanent...there's no undoing it once it's been done...I like to use my scanner and get a high quality digital scan of anything that is especially important.
I hope this helps you get a jump on any piles of mementos you have sitting around!
