Paper Bag Mini Album~

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am sharing a paper bag album I made, for a lady in my Griefshare group : j
It is 3 bags; bottom part folded up- and I used my square-hole binding machine.
(We R Memory Keepers Cinch Book Binding Tool with Square Holes,) - - -
But instead of adding the wire binding, I simply used multi-colors of seam binding to tie the bags together!
This book is covered in soft patterns and papers from Bo Bunny and Prima.
It also includes some lace, fabric, micro-beads, and some  Diamond glitter glass from (click >) Rene Harrisons Etsy shop.   There are lots of little tags & such for photo's or journaling~
 The whole thing then (barely) ties closed with the vertical white ribbon~ WHEW!

THANKS to any and all who choose to stop in and take a look!

I included a supply of photo corners for her to add some pics : )

One of the inside pages~  I used some embossing folders for 'texture' on the tags.
That beautiful butterfly stamp is from (>) Gunhild at Stempelglede stamps in Norway~

This is the last page - the back page is the 'open' end of the paper bag; large enough to hold a small book or a few treasures!

And here is the back cover; just so you can see it: ) The ribbon is secured in the back and wrap's around to tie in the front~

THANK YOU!! I'm off to see some NEUTRALS!
I want to take a peek over at Apple Apricot for  (>)"Simply Neutrals Tuesday" !!
Love love to be inspired by the beautiful entries there~
Have a blessed week~ Karen
