So as a former hardcore party kid I have a TON of flyers and misc memorablia from old parties that I've gone to.

I want to make a scrapbook of all my stuff instead of having it languish in a box...

The trouble is, my biggest flyer is almost 17 in wide by 11 in tall.  Do they even MAKE scrapbook type things of that size?

I know NOTHING about scrapbooking so I figured I better ask...

Also, has anyone else done this with their flyers & stuff (well besides my friend who gave me the idea...  Tongue)??

it's better to be looked over than overlooked

i'm almost positive that the biggest scrapbook is a 12x12. you could trim down the poster or make a special page protector for it. all you would have to do is go ahead and get a 12x12 scrapbook and fold your flyer in half so its 8.5x11- fold it so all the words are facing the inside. then, adhere only the bottom half to your scrapbook. when you put in the the protector, you could do 1 of 2 things. first, you could cut a slit in it where the fold is and pull the top half so it hangs out. or you could cute a whole box the size of the flyer out so you could fold it out to full size.

I've seen large books of paper bound so you can remove the sheets of paper one at a time why not bind one so it stays together?

or what about using the flyer to cover the scrap book?

love_me - That's a good idea!  Thanks Smiley 

cataway - I'd love to do that and that was my original solution  BUT I'm also kinda lazy Wink Oh, that and I also don't really know how to bind books yet.  Maybe when I'm ready to actually sit and do it though I'll be more willing to put in a bigger effort (it's not in my list of top few projects to finish yet).

skye691 - It's not really the most important flyer to me so I don't think I'd want it on the cover, I'd like something more meaningful to me but that IS a good idea Smiley

$20 is pretty good for a scrapbook that sizeable! And you could always decrate the cover, to go with your theme better. This way you could show off all the fliers full glory though.

they do make giant ones, they are for newspaper clippings and pages. so they are the size half of a newspaper. (one page)
