Paper Bag Mini Album

This Mini albums was made using Paper bags, I haven't used the paper bags before because its very hard to get hold of them here in the UK, the bags I got aren't the best as the aren't perfect in shape but after a little adjusting they turn out pretty good to work with.
I used 6 paper bags on this album, the paper stack i used is by melissa Francis they were 12 x 12 sheets, each page has photo mats, and in each pocket page there is large tags 8.'' x 5.5.
I used my alternations die to cut out some letters to add the words CHERISH & SMILE.
The front cover has been embellished with a stamped sentiment, I have added I Am Roses ,WOC flowers
Flat back pearls,Lace Trim and a Martha Stewart Butterfly.
I have used Vinyl for the spin binding and 2 chipboards for the front and back cover.
The over all size of this album is 8.5'' x 6.5''
I had fun making this album as the paper bags were a treat to work with.
I would really like to get hold of some smaller paper bags to try making smaller albums, i have got lots of 6x4 photos i would like to get into an album and small paper bags would be better.
