Tips for Using Fabrics in Scrapbooking

Do you want to take your next scrapbooking project to the next level? One of the most fun ways to do it is by incorporating different fabrics into the mix. While scrapbookers have long turned to pattern paper to do this, fabric can really set your scrapbook apart and make it look unique. It can also help you to draw attention to certain items within your scrapbook. Here are a few fun ways to use fabric when you are working on a scrapbook.

Use fabric to make your titles.

The title of your scrapbook is probably big and bold already. But if you really want to make it special, use fabric to create the title. You can use cardboard to create each letter for the words that make up the title and then cover the cardboard with fabric to give it extra dimension. It will look great when you use fabric to make a scrapbook title.

Bring large objects to life with fabric.

When you create a large object within a scrapbook, you can help set it apart by using fabric to do it. For example, let’s say you are working on creating a tree for your scrapbook. You might want to think about using something like a corduroy fabric for make the bark for it. You also might want to find a deep green fabric to make the leaves. This will enhance the tree and make it more visually appealing.

Create a border using fabric.

Most scrapbook pages have some kind of border around them. Why not make some of those borders using fabric? It’s often easier to do a fabric border than doing one using paper, glitter, sequins, and more, and it will look a lot better when you go with fabric. It’s also a creative way to pull some of the different colors on a page together.
