Welcome to the Summer of Paper series – where we’ve invited fabulous guests to create projects using supplies from my Home + Made paper decor line.
Hello, hello new friends! My name is Heather and I blog over at Twin Dragonfly Designs. I am passionate about inspiring creativity and just know that if I can do this, so can you!
Jen kindly sent me a box full of goodies from her new Home + Made paper decor line. Seriously you guys, Jen has MAD styling skills and a fabulous eye for design. But you knew that already right?! I LOVE every single scrap from this line! It’s gorgeous. All of the beautiful supplies in this new collection made creating this fun Paper Bag Mini Album a real treat!
Mini Paper Bag Albums are a fun way to save treasured memories or give a truly unique gift. The pockets created by the paper bags are the perfect place to store mementos, personalized notes and photographs. There are many different ways to embellish each album, I had fun with this gold, black and pink theme!
Creating your own paper bag album is as easy as 1-2-3. 1 – gather a wide variety of coordinating paper craft supplies. 2 – sew six paper bags together at the closed end. 3 – embellish each page in your new book as desired.
I used these awesome paper bags from the Home + Made line as the base for my book. I love, love, love the gold polka dots! Jen also has a ton of fabulous patterned paper in her new collection. It was hard to narrow my selection down to just a few coordinating colors and patterns. I used fun puffy stickers included in the line to embellish many of the pages!
The possibilities in creating your own unique album are seriously endless! I love the idea of personalizing this, maybe filling the pockets with packets of tea or scratch off tickets and giving it as a gift. Or what about starting the school year off right with a back to school themed mini album for your childs teacher?!
One of the fun printed papers in this collection includes ALL of these tags! I simply embellished them with washi tape, bits of ribbon and scalloped edges. Then I inserted them into the opening of my paper bags to add interest, texture and a fun place to jot down personalized notes.
I hope that you love this album as much as I do! If you love finding new creative projects, testing out delicious recipes and bonding over the trials and tribulations of parenting you should totally come and visit me sometime! I would love to get to know y’all better! Just swing by Twin Dragonfly Designs to say hi.
