A common question from new notebooking families is, “What do we do with all the empty boxes on our notebooking pages?” When I first learned about notebooking I had one advantage… I learned about it at a convention and was I able to see lots of great examples. I do want to answer this question so those of you new to notebooking get a vision of what they can look like.
The answer is a simple one though… anything you want to add. I know that’s a really broad answer, but it’s true. I’ll be a little more specific about what you can add to the boxes.
What Can Be Added to the Empty Boxes on Notebooking Pages
- artwork printed from the internet, books, magazines, brochures or any other printed source
- black and white image to color
- doodles or illustration – Nope, your child does not need to be an artist!
- pressed flowers
- vocabulary words with written definitions or illustration to define
I hope that list helps a little. Now let’s look at example of notebooking pages found around the internet. Click on the images to be taken the posts they came from.
