If you print your photos at a photo shop, grocery or drug stores then you usually get index prints with your photos. The index card with little photo captions is great for reference when you first get you photos back, but what do you do with the index prints after you layout all your photos?
Since many of us don't like to let things go to waste here is an idea for those little index prints. You can cut the strips and use them as a border for your page layouts and/or pictures. By using your index prints you are creating a “summary” or “collage” of the events and photographs on the current page and the next series of pages.
I never thought that those index prints could be of any use, but I think that this is a great idea and I think that it will give my scrapbook more creativity!!! I can't wait to try it!!!
I have used the index prints on my Scrapbook layouts, and they look cool! I used mine at the end of the album on a closing page and it made all the pages tie together in unity - i really liked how it looked and how it made the whole album just come together!
