Hi all, happy day!! jen t. here.
I am stopping by today to share a fun mini album i made. I call it a flip paper bag mini album because it is made from paper bags and then when you get to the middle you flip it to see the other half, one side baby boy and the other baby girl.(you know, kind of like those story books that are 2 in 1 ) So i used that idea to make this mini for my friend who is having twins- a boy and girl so she could either put her sonograms pics or new pics on the album and in the pockets. For the paper I used, the Wee Ones collection is perfect for this project.
To start for this album, i kept the paperbags the full size. I then cut and trimmed the patterned paper to size only folding one paper bag 3/4 of the way (to make my middle) so that all pages front of that folded one are girl and all pages after the folded one are boy. I then took diecuts, stickers and scraps of my patterned paper left to make a couple tags and make framed pages as for photos to be accented by them later. I then, hole punched two holes thru all the bags and threaded ribbon thru it to bind it together. I then, embellished with my enamel dots and a couple plastic rocking horses to add simple interest to the mini.
