Your first Holy Communion is a special event in your life, and what better way to commemorate it than through scrapbooking. Doing a scrapbook for your Holy Communion allows you to look back and reminisce on your journey through your religious faith. And considering the importance of the event, it is advisable that the scrapbooking be done in a proper and respectful way.

Choose an all-white scrapbook that you can decorate yourself. You can print out images from the computer and glue it onto the front cover. For example, consider an image of a large cross or praying hands. The pictures coincide with the theme, and you have a scrapbook designed to your specifications. To add a little something special to the white, tie a silk white or silver ribbon around the book, which can be a touch of decor and help keep the book closed. If you would rather not design it yourself, you can pick up a religious-themed scrapbook at craft stores.
On the first page of your scrapbook, put a picture of yourself on the day of your Holy Communion. The picture can be in colour, or you can change it to black and white to give it a different feel. Around your picture you can put glitter designs or religious stickers. Other options are to create a border around the picture using pieces of ribbon or glitter paint.
On one page of the scrapbook, include a picture of your church. Most likely, either from the church or as a gift from a loved one, you received a rosary. Have the rosary hanging next to the church picture. When you want to use it, you know exactly where it is and, in the meantime, it can serve as a part of the scrapbook. Tape the rosary carefully onto the page so it does not fall out.
Whether you send out invitations for your loved ones to attend your Holy Communion or you are having a party, include one of the invitations in the scrapbook. Place it on a special background, such as one comprised of lace or silk. It is a way to beautifully display the invitation for a very special event.
On the pages of the scrapbook, create personalised backgrounds reflecting how you feel about Holy Communion. For example, on one page, write down words that you associate with the event and on another, write a letter to God about the experience. You can also write a page that is reminiscent of a diary entry, explaining your nervousness or excitement about the sacrament, which you can use as a background and a keepsake. Another option is to put your favourite quotes from the Bible. When you have your background pages in, you can put pictures and other mementos on top of them.
Chances are you will receive cards for your Holy Communion. Include these in the scrapbook as well. You can put one on each page or overlap two or more depending on the size of the cards.
