Paperbag Album - Fun and Easy!!!

For a "Going Green" party I had last night, I decided to have everyone try a paperbag album instead of the usual one page layout or card. They had so much fun! Ok, now your turn to try...

We used 2 (smaller sized) paperbags, but you could use as many as you wanted!!! Glue the bottom flap down and put glue in the sides so you can't spread the bag apart. Alternate their direction and then fold in half. Using your eyelet punch (biggest hole), hammer 3 holes to thread your ribbon through and double knot. Binding done!

Using a 4x4 piece of Clover Meadow CTMH cardstock, we wrapped an acrylic block with bubble wrap, inked with desert sand CTMH ink, and pressed onto cardstock creating the fun dotto background! Distress edges with desert sand ink as well.

For the inside pages, we just used 4x4 scraps of green patterned paper, edge distressed in desert sand ink ;)

Using the coluzzle system and tag template, we cut tags to slide in the side pocket that was formed. (Decorate with green scraps & ribbon)

On the back, we did the leather look technique. Crumple the cardstock (can mist with water) and then flatten back out (can use iron). Slide desert sand CTMH ink over the piece, viola! Looks like worn leather!!! OK, maybe not on green cardstock, but it does give a fun texture!

Try one yourself and I would love to hear your comments!!!!
