Good morning everyone!
In honor of Thanksgiving being next week (seriously! Next week! Where has this month gone?!) I am sharing my Thanksgiving mini.
But first, a tutorial on how to create a paper bag mini album.
To be honest, I'm not sure where I saw these first, but I've seen them in lots of places!
Paper lunch bags (I used the oversized ones, but you can use the regular ones too)
A glue stick
1. Place the bag so the flap on the bottom is facing down. Then, fold up the bottom so that the flap is now facing you. Press it down so you have a nice fold. Repeat this with a second bag.
If you cut the bags longer than the flap, you will have "mini pages" inside your album, like this:
If you cut your bags to the same size as the flap, all your pages will be the same length, like this:
5. Repeat these steps as many times as you want. Each time you repeat you will get six additional pages.
6. Once you are done, punch holes in the paper bags and tie them together.
From now until Thanksgiving, I'll be sharing the different pages from my paper bag mini album :)
This is the cover.
I can't wait to share the rest with you! Its my first paper bag mini - but I'm sure it won't be my last!
