Paper Bag Album(Pic Heavy)

I made my first paper bag album!!! It was alot of fun to make.
The Front

Inside pages







And the tags that go inside the bag openings on the sides, top 3 are envelopes with a card inside to journal on.

Thanks for letting me share.

Cool! I love it!! I want to do something like that, but I have no clue where to even start. Did you do that in a class or did you do it on your own?

I did it on my own but with instructions, it was very easy to make heres the instructions I used but I didn't sew the bags together.

That is really neat. I've never seen anything like it. Did you make it for someone for something?

I started it yesterday afternoon, I punched the holes in for the spine and then had to stop because Kaylee got up from her nap, then it only took me about 1 hour to cut, adhere the papers, and tie the spine with ribbon. Then today I added the tags, envelopes, ribbons, inking and stickers. It prob took 2 hours give or take. It was a very easy project and a great way to use scraps that are just sitting around. The only bad thing is the paper bag is not acid-free, where ever I read it said to make sure you don't put your original pictures into the album.

I love it! You did a great job and I passed on the instructions to a friend who teaches 1st grade. I thought that would make a neat memory book for her kids.
