Easy Paperbag Gift Album
About a year ago, my mom was admiring my 12x12 Scrapbook albums, saying how much she would love to have them at her house (she lives 6 hours away). So I decided to make it happen, well sort of!
I took photos of all my favourite LO's, I then digitally cropped them as much as possible and printed them at 4x6. I trimmed of the white ends off to make squares. I took 6 paper bags and quickly sewed up a paper bag album. I then took sticker alphas and put a cover together with some embellies. I attached all my mini LO pics with a glue runner. I then decorated some pages further by adding some stickers and a little bit of trim (I have a boy and his pages don't require a lot of cutesey embellies) .... and VOILA!
I gave it to her and she was thrilled to get to take home a part of the albums with her. The whole project took only a couple hours to make and it will have a lifetime of loving!
