Tribute albums are specialized scrapbook albums that feature thoughts and memories about a family member, friend or colleague. These albums make wonderful retirement or anniversary gifts. In order to plan and assemble a tribute album there are few things you should do in preparation.
1. Decide what you want to include in the album. Do you want to include personal messages from people with their pictures? Do you want photos from specific events such as family functions, work-related events, etc.
2. Make a list of people you want to be included in the tribute album. Get names and contact numbers for each person and tell them what you need such as quotes, stories, memories, pictures, etc.
3. Once you have received the items back from friends, family and colleagues, organize your items and get ready to create your scrapbook pages.
Before you start on the memory book you should determine what type of scrapbook album you want to use. A Westrim strap-hinge album will allow for a classic tribute book and you will be able to leave plenty of room for page additions.
Creating a personalized scrapbook album is a great way to show someone how much they are loved. This type of gift is a timeless heirloom that is sure to be treasured for many generations.
