Here's how you go about making a paper bag album:
Choose the paper bags you'd like to use. I think 5 works well for this project, but you could use a few more if you'd like to do so.
Using your grid paper, mark your holes. Punch 2 or 3 bags at a time, using the Crop-A-Dile.
Your measurements for your papers and your little spine piece of CS are based on the size of your paper bags.
I scored it at 1 1/2" and again at 2" and then marked the holes and punched them, to line up with the holes in the paper bags.
Optional: Add a second sprig of ribbon in a coordinating color.
Now I stopped at this point and sent everyone off to add the finishing touches to their own albums, following their own path of creativity.
Here is an old album I made using paper lunch bags. I cut them down slightly, so they'd be more of a square. This one has a lot of pages.
If you don't want to use paper bags, then just use CS pieces, cut to the size you'd like for your pages. Attach them together the same as I did my paper bag album and embellish them to your heart's content. You won't have the option of having pockets with pull-out pieces, so you'll just add your photos directly onto your pages. You can make a mini album be pretty much whatever you can dream up!
So... start dreaming and then go create!!! Let me know what you come up with for your mini album!
