**NEW** Mini Album

Today at Practical Scrappers we are featuring one of my most things to create--mini albums.  Most of the time I usually create mini word albums, but this time I tried out something I've never done before and that is use paper bags as my album pages.  This was a lot of fun and very easy to assemble- probably the quickest I've ever put a mini together.  Here's a look at the it...

front cover
For the cover, I used cardboard that I covered.  Other paper bag mini's I've seen have a 1 inch binding.  Well, if you are like me then go at least 2 inches.  I ended up cutting my original binding (it was all the pink pattern paper) and having to create a new one with some thin chipboard I then covered. The blank tag is for the year--haven't decided if I am keeping, selling, or giving this as a gift yet so it's all blank!

all the pages

 some of the inside pages ( I only shared my favorites, but this is most of them)
You can see one of the insert I made in the first picture.  I varied it up with, pull-outs for pics, journaling, tags, but there are 15 of them total.   

Now this was something fun I wanted to share....this is an up-close picture of the back of an adhesive back chipboard embellishment that I cover with flocking.  It was a great way to give it a finished look while keeping it from sticking to the other page when the album is closed.  I also used glitter to do some of the other chipboard pieces I had "hanging over the edge".

Hope you enjoyed!

Wow!!! This is a GREAT mini album. So much detail, each page is its own little treat. And I love the paper line you used. Love it!!
