How to Protect a Scrapbook Cover
One of the most important parts of a scrapbook is your scrapbook cover. This is an opportunity to show your scrapbook theme right on the front and also to add things that may not have fit in the inside dÃ©cor of the scrapbook. You may spend a great deal of time working on your scrapbook and you want to keep it in good condition for many years to come.
The best way to do this is to create a great cover that will protect all of your special memories for a long time to come. In addition to the cover you will want to follow the proper preservation techniques to keep your scrapbook and its cover in good condition for many years.
When it comes to covers for your scrapbook, there are different types to choose from. For example, you can make a cloth covering for your scrapbook which is a bit like placing it inside a cloth bag that you have specially decorated for the theme of the scrapbook.
You can make this yourself by measuring out cloth in the size to fit your scrapbook and then sewing it together, leaving an opening for your scrapbook to fit inside. You can make flaps that will hold onto the scrapbook cover and hold the sides together.
Another option for your scrapbook cover is a clear plastic cover. These are easy to buy or make and they can fit right over your scrapbook to protect it from dents, dust and more. You wonâ€™t have to hem a plastic cover which also makes them quicker and easier to use and they can be decorated on the outside as well if you want.
Here are some additional tips for protecting your scrapbook cover:
â€¢ Store your scrapbook sitting up instead of lying down
â€¢ Never stack things on top of your scrapbook
â€¢ Store your scrapbook in a safe place away from sharp items that can scratch it
â€¢ Donâ€™t leave your scrapbook out when it is not in use
â€¢ Consider storing your scrapbooks in a fireproof safe so they will always remain in good condition
With these tips you can protect your scrapbook cover to help keep your scrapbook in good condition.
