Souvenir booklets capture the feelings and images of a meaningful place or event. A booklet may evolve from a few pages in a diary or notebook, a scrapbook project or a folder full of brochures. Combine photos, news clippings, receipts and memorabilia in a sturdy binder and add personal remembrances about the contents to create a one-of-a-kind booklet. Add a few vinyl pockets to hold oddly-shaped or delicate items in safety.


Select an aspect that various events have in common and build the booklet around that theme. An art lover may base a booklet on "My Favorite Art Museums" and include admission-ticket stubs, exhibit flyers and exterior photographs taken showing the name of each museum. Record the date and circumstances of the visit. Add images of the most memorable art work viewed.


Remember "My Week in Washington, DC" with a booklet of the various sites visited. Start with photos of the departure airport or station. Include the locations visited and people met along the way, wrapping up with a photo of departure from the Washington area. Add information about the feelings experienced and interesting information learnt on the trip.

Time Capsule

A personal time capsule souvenir booklet offers a snapshot of a moment. Add photos, newspaper headlines and other memorabilia to capture the essence of that moment. "Baby Cathy's New World" might include the top stories from the day of her birth, along with an envelope postmarked that day, the hospital ID bracelets worn by baby and mother and other pertinent information. Look for things that capture the feeling of the day beyond the nursery, but don't forget a photo of the new family.

Capture the changing face of a familiar location with a chronological arrangement of souvenirs and images. "A Decade at Buckingham Fountain" can bring new insights into the fountain and its surrounding park. Include images of different seasons, if possible, to display the evolution of the area in a compressed format. Include notes of the thoughts inspired by the changes.


Highlight the high spots in a booklet dedicated to keeping the feeling of success alive, such as "My Top Trophy Fish." Add certificates, programs or other documentation along with photos to celebrate the accomplishments. Include personal notes of the feelings that accompanied the triumphs.

Bucket List

Organise a souvenir booklet around a list of goals. Fill in the booklet with the steps taken toward each goal. Document the planning of each part of the accomplishment. For example, the goal of competing in the Boston Marathon might include stamina training routines, research into running shoes and results of your participation in local races. Wrap up each section with the documentation of the completion of the goal.
