I'm making my boyfriend a scrapbook of our relationship so far for Christmas. I have doubles of some tickets and such but i don't want to put the originals in the album as I keep them in a box of our stuff. Would it look horribly bad if i put in copies? Any ideas on how to do this without making it look cheesy?

Personally, I would put the originals in the scrapbook and then add the scrapbook to the box! I get that you don't want to damage the originals, but if you really want the scrapbook to be special I don't think copies will look very good. That's just my opinion, though.

Maybe you could get copies made at a professional print shop (or even Kinko's?) because they can do higher quality reproductions.

I 100% understand keeping things like that in a keepsake box, because I do the same thing.  But how often do you take those things out and look at them??  A scrapbook will display your treasures in a fun way that highlights who you are and your relationship, and mix it with the pictures that go with those memories. 

You can use the glue dots that don't stick too terribly much, so if you REALLY need to, you can take them out and put them back in your keepsake box.  But display those things - that's what they're for!!


It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...
