Shadow Box from Exposures
Pin booties, a birth announcement, a cap, and more into a Shadow Box from Exposures and display them in baby’s room. We say it counts as a scrapbook. ($35 – $60; exposuresonline.com)
Instead of showing off the traditional “brag book”, send your friends and family a few photos in classy accordion books from Rag & Bone — you can display them at home or mail them as gifts to family and friends. ($26, ragandbone.com)
For those of you who want a snazzy scrapbook but don’t have a lot of time on your hands, consider mini scrapbooking kits that help you “do it yourself” without having to start from scratch, like the adorable books K and Company that come with all the stickers and cut-outs that you need to create a really original brag book. ($7 to $10, www.kandcompany.com)
Photo sharing sites like shutterfly.com have so many photo product options to choose from — send calendars to family members, make a mouse pad for your office, or put your baby’s photo on a keepsake box where you can store baby mementos. ($2 per custom card, $25 – $60 per photo book; $40 for a personalized story book; $90 – $150 for a canvas print; $10 for a mousepad; $20 for a keyring; $30 for a keepsake box; shutterfly.com)
