One easy and very trendy way to create a keepsake book is to compile everything into a smash book. So what is a SMASH book? It is a quick place to literally “smash” photos, memorabilia, journal notes, and other keepsakes into one place for a collage of memories.
So instead of buying a pre-made smash book I wanted to upcycle and make a smash book as well as have a more personalized book than something I could find at the store because I figured if I’m going to all the trouble to hand make this project then perhaps having a “green” way of making the base of the book would be a great way to make it even more personal
Below is an example of how to make a smash book from an old ring binder.
