Bind It All - Paper Bag Album!

WOW! I love the way this turned out! I made this my friend's daughter who will be starting college this year. I hope she likes it! It's an "all about me" album! I used 3 large lunch bags folded in half and it's bound together with O wires. I used Phresh & Phunky Basic Grey papers, Primas, and lots of brads. The patterned paper that I cut for each page is 5.75" x 5.75".


I love the cover! The front cover is also a pocket page. You can see the tag for the hidden pull-out page on the right. There are three hidden pull-out pages, because I used three paper bags, and the open portion of each bag is a "pocket".


The pink portion on both pages are pockets!


The triangle sections on both pages are pockets.


I added two 3.5" x 5" photo mats, and the title "Friends". I added two large QuicKutz photo corners to each mat.


The side sections on both pages are pockets.


Two 3.5" x 5" photo mats were added to these pages. I added QuicKutz small photo corners to the mats.

I'm really hoping that an 18 year-old likes this book. I love the way it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have to post this anonymously because I'm new to this, but I'm the lucky mom of this girl and can tell you that she absolutely loves it. The paper choices were perfect, and the pictures do not do justice to the final project!
