The Faux Paper Bag Mini

As far as I know, the paper bags a lot of people use to make mini albums aren't available in the U.K. So I just made a few from copy-paper, used up a load of My Minds Eye papers, and made a no-paperbag paperbag album... easier just to say "Faux Paper Bag Mini" :)


The papers were unusual colours - an acidic greeny yellow, and deep rusty reds... but the combination actually worked really well together. There are eight sets of pages - one large bag page that holds a large tag, one small bag that has a 6"x4" photo matt in it, and one  flap that is stuk to the next set of pages and this contains a little 4"x4" booklet. I used deep oranges and burgundy coloured card stock to make the photo matts, as well as the circular 'pulls' on the tags.

This is beautiful, the colors all go so well together. Is there anything you can't make or don't like making? How do you find the time and ideas for everything. Love coming here and being inspired. How are the little kittens doing?

Ignore my question about the kittens, I've just read your past posts and saw their picture. They are getting bigger and cuter each time.
