How to...Create an Online Scrapbook

I like taking pictures. I like being able to display those pictures in a creative way. Online scrapbooks are a fast and easy way to share your photos and videos. Smilebox is one of my favorite tools to use. It is super easy, and you can share it anywhere. It is free; however, you do have to have a paid subscription to print it, or to share it without advertisements.

Since you can post videos in your Smilebox, it is a great way for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins to see what your little one has been up to recently.
