I made my first paper bag album and I must say I think it turned out very well for a first timer! It has a lot of different inserts (pull outs) and I had a pretty hard time being able to show all of the book with just pics but I think I did it. One of the inserts is actually a little booklet in itself! I tried to caption with the pics what you're seeing.. hopefully I did a good job of that. If you have any questions about it let me know.. Id be happy to answer them.
It's halloween themed and fits into a few different challenges.
To make this album I used:
black, purple, lime green, neon orange & pumpkin orange card stock (covering bags and die cuts)
8 paper lunch bags (main album body)
terrifically tacky tape (for adhering bags)
atg gun (for adhering bags)
zig glue (to adhere die cuts to pages)
Sure cuts a lot (to make the witch on the broom)
cricut cartridges: wild card, happily ever after, and lifes a beach (all other die cuts)
orange zig marker (coloring in the pumpkin's face)
black ink pad (to distress most of the pages)
black & orange ribbon (for tags and inserts)
orange, green, white & purple tempera paint (to paint the chipboard cover)
2 different pumpkin stamps, 1 mummy stamp, 1 scaredy cat stamp
and probably more I'm forgetting.
How it fits into the above challenges:
it is what ever (what'eva")
it is anything goes (anything goes)
I used 2 pumpkin stamps that are over a year old (old stamps)
on 2 different inserts in the book there is a witch flying on her broom (transportation)
halloween themed (holiday fun)
there is a brad holding the spiderweb on the 2nd page on so that it can spin (brads or eyelets)
Anyway Im really happy with this book.. Pretty amazed I did such a decent job on my first try!
Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
