Heart Glitter Stickers
Small Jewelry Tags
Filigree Rubber Stamp
E6000 Glue
Graphics Fairy Postcard
Hearts #11 French Floral
Tags #5 Vintage Text
Sisters 1 Collage Sheet
Bind It All (optional)

Technique:

(1) I used 5 standard size lunch bags to create this album. Please refer to this video clip to see how it was put together…the artist has even more details for creating fancier covers. It will give you a better concept of folding the bags and getting them into place. Your paperbag album can be as simple or fancy schmancy as you wish.

(2) Once your album (bags) has been put together, start decorating with pattern papers. I distressed the edges of my pattern papers.

(3) Go through the album and start adding ephemera, tags, images, stickers, throughout.

(4) Add ribbon or lace to tags. Tuck bits of ephemera or journal cards inside the bag ends.

Please see this Youtube link for additional ways to create a Paper Bag album:
