Paper Bag Scrap Album

Greetings! Today I would like to share an album made from paper bags. I used six bags with the bottoms cut off on this one. Each of the twelve pages is matted with patterned paper and stamped with a Bible verse. I also made cardstock inserts for each "pocket" and added colored tabs.It is bound using my Big Bite and ribbons. I really like the way this turned out and plan to make several more for a craft show in the fall. Hope you like it, too! Have a blessed day!

  4. This is really a good idea, I will have to remember this for Bible school next time. I teach crafts to 4th,5th,& 6th graders and I think they would be able to accomplish this with help from me.

  12. These are great! What a fun project and you mentioned your Big Bite, perfect for making the holes for binding the bags together. This would be a great project for my Sunday School class using their memory verses.
