Lunch bag or envelope books are great, everyone can have a page - what we do is they pass the albums around and each girl decs a page about herself in each girl's book - that way they have a record of all their friends.  I have seven 8th grade girl scouts who love to scrap about themselves!

I hope this isn't too late to add an idea. It goes along with Emma's idea of a page or book of themselves to boost self-esteem. Have each girl put a picture of themselves in the middle of a page and have everyone else write or doodle something nice about that person or something they admire about them.

Oriental Trading has a scrapbooking catalog that has a lot of neat in-expensive items to scrap and personalize.  They also have a lot of neat supplies to use on scrapping projects.  One project that I had the girls do at my daughter's b-day party was to decorate a clip board.  I got the clip boards at Sam's Club for a little over a dollar each and then supplied paper, stickers, ribbon, and embellishments and the girls had a lot of fun personalizing their clipboards.  My daughter has hers hanging on her room door.

One fun idea would be to have them scrap pages for each other. We do that with our scrapbooking group. We exchange pictures and someone else does a page for you with your pictures. It's really fun seeing what ideas someone else comes up with for your pictures. It's always fun to go back and look at your books and see someone else's work.

You could do a srcap books of them selves, make them feel better in their self, put things they like about them selves, what they want to do in the life when they are older, their family and what they like there are many things surounding them selves, doesnt need to be big, at least then they can take it home and add things to it when they want.

The Scrapbbok frames are a great idea, and Michael's has them on sale all the time for $4.99.  A friend of mine did these for her daughters 16th bday party and the girls all loved making the pages for their frames.

If you're looking for something for the girls to make, one idea is a calendar. Of course you can do any size, but something that is fun, is to make one that is the size of a CD case. Then, the CD case can be opened all the way around, sit on a desk top and then calendar pages inserted. Good luck!

How funny! I do scrapbooking at our church once a month but it is mostly women who come. But something that they like are the door prizes. I do charge for people to come, but not very much. Then I go to Walmart or Joann's or Dollar tree and get paper, stickers, or other little stuff and give something away every hour. I try to make sure everyone ends up with something. One of my favorite things to do is to buy the newest big pack of paper from Joann's and then divide it up in 6 piles. You could also put motivation behind the prizes like whoever gets the most pages done or something. I think though teens are going to have lots of pictures of friends so finding cute ideas to highlight friendship would be fun! Here is a fun link for some cute ideas. http://seemyscrap.com/cpg/index.php?cat=...
