Paper Bag Mini Album

I saw this project and had to give it a try for my nieces birthday. What a clever idea to use paper bags this way. I think kids would just love these albums, they crinkle and crackle as you handle them, they've got pockets for treasures and photos...great fun!

For this I used svgs of butterflies, squirels, roastings marshmellows, picture frame, seals. A ceramic butterfly, Fox piece from some restaurant puzzle I had, even a mirrored frog. I ripped some school paper, inked it up a bit and glued it in so she could jot some notes down of her own.

You can find a tutuorial from The Paper Trail on You Tube:
