I love making paper bag photo albums, they're cheap and easy to make and I can use up left-overs from other scrap-booking projects. First, take a paper bag and fold it in half:
Then fold one-three more bags (I usually don't make make these mini albums out of more than four sacks because they become too fat once you add all of the embellishments and photos). Take the other bags and stack them alternating the ends like this:
At this point you can punch three holes on the spine of your book and tie them up with ribbon or you can decorate them first (that is the way I prefer to make them). Staple the opening of one of your sacks to make a sleeve for adding more photos (sorry for the crappy photo):
Staple other end of the bag to add more sleeves for photos and embellishments:
Decorate your bags just like you would a regular scrap book. Here is the cover of my bag:
This is the inside of my cover:
Here is the outside of bag #2:
And the inside:
Here are my inserts for secret, hidden photos!
Now all I have to do is print my photos and add them to my cute little album!
