DIY Ideas for Slam Book
Think Before You Make
It will vary on your preferences; some of you might want to go with a simple and sweet look while some creative crazy of you would create a unique slam book of yours with the help of a particular theme like the F.R.I.E.N.D.S series or Harry Potter or maybe stick to a color theme like pastels or neutrals.
Next, Find A Notebook
It is a slambook, a book! So yeah, a book is a must. But you can go for any kind of book, be it a composition notebook with lined pages inside or a fancy journal or even a scrapbook. As long as there are lots of blank pages inside the book where people can fill in, it is good to go.
Go Crazy With The Cover
We all do the one thing that the wise men told us not to do, that is, we judge the book by its cover. Always! Well, old habits die hard. So rather than worrying about it, let us try to make the cover of your slam book as appealing as it can be. You can use glitters, stickers, gemstones or beads, markers, or even ribbons to decorate the cover of the slam book. Remember, that the cover should clearly indicate that it is a slam book but also don’t forget that it will reflect your personality as well. So go with your heart.
It’s A Slam Book!
Include an introduction, like your own personal note right at the beginning of the slam book where you can clearly explain what this slam book is and that you just want to create happy friendly bonds with it. Also mention that they are completely free to refuse to do this. And tell them that it would be really fun and who knows, they might just change their mind. Wink!
Frame The Questions
Decorating the slam book is alright but the fun begins when the questions arise. Framing questions for the slam book is not as easy as it might seem. You can take references from other slam books that are available in the stores or just go with your own curious mind and start preparing questions that will give you the maximum details about the other people. From ‘favorite music or food’ to ‘the places you have visited,’ you can include any type of question. Sneak in some questions like ‘embarrassing moments’ or ‘current crush’ and things will just get more interesting then. Wink!
Spread Love, Not Hate
Slambook is fun where people can write anything that tickles them and touches their hearts. But it can also be quite mean or offensive when they write hateful comments or talk bad about others in the slam book. One silly mistake and the slam book might end up in the wrong hands and then the content inside may just affect the person in a way that one cannot imagine. So, try to include questions that wouldn’t make someone spill their vile thoughts for others. Slambook is after all about sharing love and getting to know each other. Let’s keep it that way. #peace Wink!
