Video #4 - Paper Bag Mini Album

Hello! Today I have just a quick video demonstrating how to make a paper bag mini album. I came up with this quick idea because I LOVE the look of kraft cardstock, however I didn't want to make a minibook with thinner pages. The paper bags give the pages a thick, rustic look that I definitely LOVE! I haven't started decorating the book yet, however when I do I will post an updated video showing how it looks! I hope you like it!

What You Will Need For This Project:
- 5 to 6 lunch size paper bags (more or less as you choose)
- thick 2 way glue pen
- 12x12 piece kraft cardstock (or other colour of your choice)
- paper trimmer and scorer

Please leave a comment! I love to hear from you!!

Thanks for sharing your video, I really enjoyed watching. I love making paper bag albums and its great to see how other's make theirs. i'm currently making a Christmas one using 'The Snowman' Papers and have made the spine in a concetina style, but I think I will have to try your way too.
the last one I made I stitched the spine with ribbon.. you can find it here I'd love it if you took a look.

Hi Lisa,

How are you? Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I use a PC and I rarely have problems...not sure. I'd love to see this video. I had my 5th grade students make a paperbag scrapbook for their mothers for Mother's Day - they were awesome. I used those long two prong file holders to hold the pages together.

My sister's blog is http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.com/ come play with us this week. We have a great sponsor.

Talk soon.

Theresa

Lisa, I love this way of making a paper bag album, especially the cover. You are such a good teacher and give very easy to understand instructions! Can't wait to see the finished album! Great video...Hugs, Mary
