Fall-Themed Paper Bag Mini Album by Jerodelle Trinidad

Hello crafty friends! Jerodelle here! Today’s project was so fun for me to create for you! Let me show you.

This collection is so beautiful. I fell in love with the colors and the overall theme. It’s toned down colors go so well with this time of year and not to mention the beautiful florals throughout.

For this album, I used white paper bags that I found at my local craft store. They came in a pack of 12 and measure 4.5in x 8.88in x 3in. I found them in the paper bags section. As I was walking through my local store, I had realized that it had been years since I have created a paper bag mini album so here we go!

This was very quick and easy to make. I grabbed 4 bags and folded them in half. Keep the opening of the bag on the right side, these will create album pockets. This gave my album 8 pages total.

I then cut 2 medium weight chipboards for the cover of the album. These measure 4 1/8 x 4 1/4. I chose 16 different patterned papers cut to the same size as the chipboards and pasted them onto the paper bags ‘pages’.

For the binding, I punched 2 holes on the left side and used binder rings to keep the album together. With leftover papers that I got from cutting the 16 different pages, I created tags. These measure 4 1/4in x 4 3/4in. I placed those tags where the paper bag has an opening and each opening had 2 tags perfect for photos and/or journaling! I finished off the album with embellishments from the collection.

Thank you so much for checking out my project!
