Using paper bags

A few weeks ago Sian From High in the Sky kindly offered her readers some paper bags and I look advantage of her offer. She also gave instructions for how to construct an album from said paper bags.  So over the half term I gathered my supplies and photos and created my own album.  Its of our holiday in Devon that my youngest and I (along with my Mum and Dad) took at the beginning of the summer holidays.

I made the covers from some chipboard and used 6 bags in total.

I left the paper bags open and added pages which can be pulled out - as you can see below.

This is the first mini book I have made for ages and really enjoyed it - the process of making and then filling up the pages.  So a big thank you Sian for the paper bags.

PS just a quick update on the phone situation - it did arrive on Tuesday as promised however I did not get a phone call to explain what had gone wrong.  You win some, you lose some!  And the oldest is very pleased with her new phone, so someone is happy.

Your paper bag album looks fab. Lovely summery papers and some great shots of precious family time.

It has turned out beautifully! I love the extra pages you can pull out - an interactive album like that gives a really "satisfying" feel to the whole project, doesn't it?
