Ok! Onto this week's project!
I decided I wanted to try my hand at making a paper bag album - I had made them a LOOOONG time ago and used to give them as shower gifts. Now I have all kinds of cool tools to make them with : ) Take a look at the pictures and I'll walk you through the process.
First, you start with three paper bags and lay them opposite of each other, one up, one down one up. Fold them in half. I used the crop a dial to punch two holes and put in two large eyelets for the binding. I cut 12 sheets of 5 x 5 coordinating papers and ran them through my xyron to make them more sturdy and easy to adhere, and then applied them to the book. Everything else were simply cricut cuts and embelishments! I ran colored ribbon through the eyelets to complete the binding and made little slider cards to pop out of the open spaces in the bags. Enjoy, and thanks for looking!
