    How to Make it:

    step1
    Immortalize their masterpieces
    Gather up their best arts and crafts. Place each piece against a plain background and shoot it up close.
    (Flat drawings and paintings can be scanned through
    a scanner instead.)

    step2
    Edit your book
    Go through the images and decide which artwork to highlight. Print your favorites in large sizes (5 x 7 and
    8 x10), and other pieces smaller.

    step3
    Lay it out
    Group images by your child’s age, or by subject
    matter or type of craft. You can trim out details from
    your child’s artwork to use to adorn the pages.

    step10(10)
    Keep it current
    Choose a scrapbook that lets you add pages through
    the years, so you can chart your child’s talent.
