A Vertical Paper Bag Album
|A special place for special memories.|
I've been busy in my little craft room, playing around with what I have on hand ~ no purchasing anything new to make this this project! Scrapping your Stash!!
This was my first attempt at making a paper bag album and I'm thinking it won't be the last one I make! I loved it. Found a wonderful, helpful tutorial on Youtube, Ginger from My Sisters Scrapper. Hats off to this video! It takes you from the very first step right on through to the finishing touches. Just a great video!
The cover is made from...a cardboard box that I saved for just these instances and covered it up with cardstock and paper, embellished with ribbons, flowers, bling, butterfly from Basic Grey...
This is the spine of the album...

|~First Page~ DCWV Heirloom Stack|
|Dollar Store Paper!! and Embellishment...A girl has to use what she has ;)|
Each page has a flap that opens up to add pictures, journaling...AND would you believe this paper came from the ...Dollar Store! Yes, I found these papers long ago and when I started pulling out the papers for my pages and the embellishments, I came across these and they actually worked better than the papers I had originally pulled from my stash. The bling is from Michael's. At the top of the page, there are two lager pull out tabs for your pictures and journaling.
