Anniversary Scrapbook Ideas

Save

Whether you've been married for one year or one decade, an anniversary scrapbook can record the highlights, changes and adventures you've experienced on your marital journey. Albums that preserve photos and written recollections of the times you've shared will become an important addition to your family archive. Anniversary albums can also make meaningful gifts for friends and family members celebrating a romantic milestone.

Remember How You Met

  • Create a mini scrapbook album that chronicles the tale of how you met. Future generations will love to hear about your first impressions, your feelings after the first date, what you saw in one another and the moment you realized you were in love. Add meaning to the scrapbook by including the mementos you collected while dating, such as restaurant receipts, message cards from flowers, love notes or movie ticket stubs. (If you don't want to affix the memorabilia to the page, place items in a pocket made with a piece of cardstock attached with double-stick tape along three sides.)

Compare Then and Now

  • Design scrapbook layouts that show how the anniversary couple has changed over the years. If you're creating a gift anniversary album, for example, ask friends and family members for photos of the couple before they met, during their courtship and years after the wedding. Leave room for the couple to write their own thoughts about how their feelings have changed over the years and how their life together compares to what they imagined it would be when they started dating.

Express Gratitude

  • If you're making an anniversary scrapbook as a gift for your spouse, design layouts that reveal the reasons you're thankful for your relationship. In addition to serious layouts that celebrate his support and the home and family you've raised together, include pages that record the lighthearted elements that make your relationship special. For example, document your inside jokes, typical lazy day activities, favorite songs, vacation misadventures and weekday morning routines.

Record Celebrations

  • Make an album to help an older couple celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. Create layouts with photos and ephemera from previous anniversary parties. Ask friends and family members to contribute personal messages detailing their heartwarming, humorous and inspired memories of the couple over the years. Chronicle the current anniversary festivities by making layouts in colors that coordinate with party decorations. Affix memorabilia like a napkin, restaurant business card or bits of streamers to the pages as meaningful accents. Leave blank photo mats and spots for journaling so the couple can add favorite photos and their own thoughts after the party.
