Love Notes Scrapbook

This year I got lots of love notes from my students and lots of pictures as well. Throughout the year I would either hang them up behind my computer or put them in a file folder and save them.  At the end of the year the file folder was bulging.  I decided that I would make a scrapbook of the love notes I received.  It will be great to look back through it on those rough teaching days or long after I have stopped teaching.  Someday way in the future I bet my kids will also get a kick out of reading the notes that my students wrote to me when I was a teacher. 

I got a 12 x 12 scrapbook. It has a spot for a picture in the front so I put a picture of my class in it.  I also bought a pack of 12 x 12 paper.  Then I spread out all my love notes and got to work putting them on pages.  I cut up some of the pictures and just used pieces of them here or there as I needed something to fill a certain space. 

Putting this together was a fun summer project that only took about a day!  I loved my kiddos this past year and I am so happy that I now have their love notes all together in a cute scrapbook that I will enjoy looking back on for years to come :)

I think this will be a must-do again next year!


  1. That's such a great idea! I have a binder that I put all of their notes and drawings into, but I love making a scrapbook. I was blessed that my room mom made me a scrapbook for teacher appreciation.
