My First Paper Bag Mini Album "From the Heart" (created April 2011)

Hello Crafty Friends,

Here is my first "Paper Bag Mini Album". I completed it this past Spring.  It's called, "From the Heart". I made it for my Mom. She will be adding her own photos and journaling and any other types of embellishments she wants, so I left it simple. I had a lot of fun creating this album. I learned and tried new techniques, including the assembling of the album (I followed Laura's tutorial from Following The Paper Trail (video).  I look forward to making a lot more of these mini albums.

  1. Your mini turned out wonderfully. Love the fun papers you used.
    I am sure your mom loved it.
    I have made 2 paper bag minis and they are so much fun to do. I made a regular sized one and a teeny tiny one.

  2. Oh you found me! Yay! I was going to send you the link. :-) Anyway, thanks! The papers are an old paper pack from DCWV. I say old, because I've that them forever, and never used them. This was my first attempt at a paper bag mini, and it really looks like a first attempt -- at least to me. My mom really loves the album. I think she's going to make it a "Grandma and Me" album, and just put pics of her and my daughter in it. Thank you for stopping by! More to come!!! :-)
