We love the quality that she puts into her bags and I would never buy them from anyone else.
She irons them out so that the bags will lay flatter. Then she sprays them with archival mist which makes the bags acid free and safe for photos. Next she sews up the middle and punches the holes. You have your choice of 3 or 5 holes. Her paper bag albums come in several different sizes. 6x6 or 8x8 are my favorites to work with.
Here is an album I made a couple years ago using an 8x8 paper bag album. I used Cosmo Cricket's Little Girls paper line.
There are many great ways to bind up the sides of the book. Remember though that the binding of it is just for looks as it already has been sewn up the middle to secure the pages in place. On this album I used strips of fabric. I have also used metal binding rings which you can find at any craft store and then tied strips of ribbon around that. I have also braided ribbon up the binding too. The possibilities are endless!
One of my favorite accents to add are acrylic flourish stamps! They are so pretty and they really add a lot of detail to the book. You can find them at your local Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for looking at my album! If you would like to make a paper bag album check out Scrapbook Supply Outlet or enter in my upcoming giveaway where I will be including a paper bag album!
