Paper Bag album

Black/White/Red Wedding Paper Bag Album

Some of the inside pages,I love making lots of pockets and adding poems,tags,little things to tuck in. Each of my paper bag albums are a labor of love,no two are actaually alike,I might do the same theme but not using the same pp and changing the design for each one I make. I teach a class at my retail store on these,and I always heare how much longer it takes then they thought it would. If your new at making them it takes at least 8 hours or more.

Each page has a pull out so you can actually display a photo. I like adding envelopes and tuck little notes,cards inside them,use your imagination and have fun.

Use your border punches or tear the paper to give it that more vintage look. Dig out your inks too,your be surprised how much inking you can do to give it that vintage look to it,but also use your stamps for the tags.

I love the use of embellishments; like flowers,vellum,3-D words,jems,ribbon,lace,vintage images tucked in.
