While the disposable camera may seem retro, it makes scrapbooking simple. No downloading digital pictures and ordering online or need for an expensive home printer. Just point, shoot, develop and paste into the album.
Scrapbooking tips recommend spending 15 minutes each evening re-creating the day’s fun on the album’s pages. Families are encouraged to be creative about collecting scrapbook items throughout the day. Postcards, brochures, ticket stubs, sections of maps, matchbook covers, menus, seashells, souvenirs, receipts and more are perfect items to glue into the album. The disposable camera makes it easy to snap photos of bike rides, boogie boarding, snoozing seals, and delicious meals and paste into the album at home.
