(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Due to the complications caused by COVID-19, the LRHS yearbook is trying to form as a club and will try to put an abbreviated yearbook together by the end of the year.  

This has led some Mustangs to think of new and inventive ways to store some of their more personal memories of the 2020-21 school year.  

Some Mustangs have turned to scrapbooking for an easy and fun way to make a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) yearbook.  

Scrapbooks can be books, boxes, or cards where pictures and stories can be kept.

Art teacher Elizabeth Henry said, “Creating scrapbooks is a great creative outlet for Mustangs. It gives them a chance to create something at their own pace and look back at it with pride. It’s really fun to look back at special memories and have a ‘book’ to store their memories.”  

Scrapbooks can be made of:  

  • Cardstock  
  • Scrap or patterned paper  
  • Scissors
  • Tape or glue  
  • Binder rings  
  • Hole puncher  
  • Pictures  

Henry continued, “For me, I find that picking a theme for each scrapbook is extremely helpful. It gives me direction when making it and overall helps the scrapbook to look put together.”
