The best photographs, like children, evoke happy memories and should be lovingly glued inside a scrapbook. Cement moments in time and on paper with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an adult scrapbooking class at BippityBoppityGlue in Orchard Park (a $20 value). Classes are held Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m., Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and Sundays at noon. More times may be added based on demand.
On tables resplendent with colorful paper and an assemblage of unique tools, BippityBoppityGlue hosts an array of scrapbooking classes for groups of nimble-fingered color coordinators. Choose from a variety of classes, such as Paper Bag Scrapbook Albums, Fun with Ink, Flower Making, or the all-inclusive Scrapbooking 101, which teaches paper novices how to create colorful memory encasements or pop-up books that detail vacations spent discovering a third dimension. Up to 15 crafters snag 3 feet of prime table real estate, where they receive instruction from wizened scrapbookers while manipulating paper into flowers, decorative frames, or replicas of yesterday’s New York Times. Over the course of the three-hour class, scrappers can munch on complimentary snacks and soda while basking in the warm chitter-chatter of paper assemblers as they craft pages of memories. BippityBoppityGlue recommends that students provide their own photos, scissors, paper trimmer, adhesive, and any other materials they would like to use in addition to the more specialized tools provided by the studio.
