This week to prep for prom we’re bringing you one of our favorite rainy day projects: starting a scrapbook. A scrapbook is the perfect way to get all of your inspiration in one place. So to get you in the scrapbooking mood, here are 6 steps to creating the perfect book:
1. Start with magazines
Grab your favorite fashion and beauty magazines and start tearing out pages that inspire you. Whether it’s red carpet pictures from your favorite fashionistas and their beautiful gowns, or a lipstick color you can’t get enough of, rip out anything that inspires you and add it to your book.
2. Add pictures of you
Think about a time when you felt beautiful. Was it your Homecoming, a family wedding, or a special birthday? Add those pictures to your scrapbook so that you remember what things you loved about your look, so you can carry those to prom as well.
3. Hit up the mall for makeup inspiration
You know those lipstick color swatches that they have at the mall? Grab a few of your favorites to put into the beauty section of your scrapbook. You can also take some nail polish swatches so that when you go to the salon before prom, you’ll know what colors you want to stick to.
4. Shoes, shoes, shoes
Finding the perfect prom shoes might be just as hard as finding your dress, so start early and find some styles that you know you’ll love no matter what dress you pick. You can even take inspiration from the Miss America Pageant, because their shoe game is always on point!
5. Add pictures of your dress
When you’re shopping for your dress snap some pictures of your favorites to add to the scrap book. When you’ve decided on the one, add pictures of the dress, your corsage, and of course your shoes.
6. After the prom
Now that you have your scrapbook started, you can make it a keepsake by filling it with prom memories. Add your prom ticket, polaroids of you and your bff’s, and some of your favorite memories. It’ll be so much fun to look back a few years later and be able to go through your whole prom journey.
