Paper bag scrapbooks

A while ago I was given an undecorated paper bag album to create, I was very new to scrapbooking when Alsion gave me this to decorate & until I had seen some other examples online I was a bit confused as to what I was supposed to do with it.
I managed to source the flat bottom paper bags, which were amazingly hard to find, whilst i'm sure that many of our american cousins throw them away on daily basis these bags are like gold dust.

This is the album I made for Paul, it is just awaiting the photo's and finishing touches.

The tabs are on the edge of pages that slip into the open ends of the bags.

Hard to believe that this mini book started life as a plain old paper bag.

Making paper bag books is really quite easy. Using 3 lunch bags, stagger them so that the open flap falls to the right, then to the left, then to the right again. Lay them one on top of the other.

paper bag books There are several ways you can bind your paper bag albums. You can punch 3 or more holes down the left side and later use ribbons to tie them together.

Or use metal rings, which you can purchase at scrapbook stores.
Once the holes are punched you could also thread ribbons through the spine.

To create additional inside pockets you can use brads, eyelets, glue or even sew down flat bottom portion of the lunch bags.

Over the weekend I have made three of these & made them into valentines cards

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
