COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

Paper Bag Mini-Album

Today I have a mini-paper bag album for you!

These bags are approx 6 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.


I used 4 bags. You can use less. I wouldn't recommend more as it will get too bulky.

Fold the bags in half. Then stack them together. I alternate them, so that the openings are not all together. If you put them together all the same way, then one half of the album will be thicker than the other. All the bottoms will be on one side, and the openings will be on the other. In alternating them, the album is evened out.


Staple the bags together and glue a piece of paper to cover the staples OR you can punch holes and add ribbon and tie them together.


Now the fun really begins! Time to play with the cover and pages inside. Here's what I did...
The places where the bag opens, I made extra spaces to pics or journalling. These are the tags I made:
