I have created two Acrylic scrapbooks and a scrapbook made from JVC video cassette cases (not just JVC but all brands )
as you can see below the two acrylic scrapbooks are made from Plexi glass ,and laminated sheets decorated with the mind of a see through book and pages while making these books you have to not only crate the page but the page behind it and eather cover or mask what you have done or to allow to show through the other side and also not putting much through the laminator as you will have a very smelly sticky mess and could potinually ruin your laminator , just keeping those things in mind while your creating
the plex glass sheets i got from Ebay they where 8x10 form but i was able to cute them down in to 4 pieces making sure that they are well messured out to match to use as the outer parts of you book , then you embellish at the end with the things that you like
tip also make sure that you use glue dots to hold it or doble sided sticky tape to hold it down things will be see though
then to use ribbion or gems or what ever you like sillicon glue works good too
pva glue works well but keep in mind your down time waiting for the glues to dry

the scrapbook that you see down below of a little girl on the front cover ( sticker)
that was used from the JVC covers cut down the sides of the boxes leaving the front and back of them ( the rest you can use for your kids to make stuff out of )or just throw away if you like
then making sure that you cover the whole item i used double sided sticky tape to put the cover on making sure i covered it all then i trimmed off the edges and embellished then i found my cropadile and punched holes in it and then put the metel rings on then decorate with ribbons and photos
