Star Wars Reads Day is Saturday, October 5th, so I rounded up a few Star Wars scrapbooking ideas and inspiration:
Star Wars Scrapbooking Ideas
Free Activity Pack:
Download an excellent FREE 32-page Star Wars Reads Day Activity Pack (PDF file, color or black & white) including recipes, crafts, coloring pages and activities.
Make a Fortune Wookie and lots of Star Wars origami using The Strange Case of Origami Yoda book series. The names are fun, too – Art2-D2, Darth Paper, Jabba the Puppet, etc. Two of the origami folding instructions are included in the Star Wars Reads Day activity kit above. The photo shows the fortune wookie my 10-year old son made using my scrapbook paper. The other origami is flat and will fit nicely in a scrapbook.
Thumb Doodle Idea:
Thumb doodles! These would be cute on a Star Wars scrapbook page, card, Project Life journaling card, or a bookmark. Instructions are included in the Star Wars Reads Day activity pack (above) and the Star Wars Thumb Doodles book.
Eye Chart Inspiration:
I spotted this great Star Wars Eye Chart (or Jed Eye Chart – get it?) on Etsy. It would also look good with “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away.”
Free Star Wars Font:
You can’t make a Star Wars scrapbook page without a Star Wars font, right? Download the free Star Jedi font from Dafont.
Free Yoda Printable:
The free Yoda printable is quite versatile. Re-size it for Project Life and add your own Yoda quote, such as “Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.” Or create a lunchbox note with something like “Have a good day you must.”
The Scrappy Jedi Blog:
Melissa Stinson is the Jedi Master of scrapbooking. Check out her blog, The Scrappy Jedi, for great scrapbooking ideas, and her Geek Girl posts for Star Wars inspiration.
May the Force of Typography Be With You. Can you believe this image was created with letters, numbers and punctuation?! See the H-57 website for three amazing poster images to inspire you.
The R2-D2 scrapbook page was created with cardstock and sewing, and can be changed into a kid’s craft as well. Click here for my tutorial and more images.
May the scrapbooking force be with you.
(Yes, I know that was corny).
