Baby split paper bag album

Have no fear! your wait is over for the baby split paper bag album! I know everyone was waiting on pins and needles to see what I created (yeah right, I know) lol.  Ever since finding out that my sister was expecting triplets I have had all sorts of ideas in my head and couldnt wait to create "something". So the first thing I created was this album.and sadly to say this is not for her (*snicker)hehe it is for me to put Aunt Marie's photos of the newbies when they arrive for my desk at work.

But I AM about to start working on an album/guestbook for her and for her babyshower. I am just waiting on a couple packages to arrive to start working on that album.

This split paper bag mini album is awesome and has more room in it for pictures than I ever thought it would so that was an unexpected bonus.  If you want to know how to put this bag together view this video by following the paper trail, this is where I learned how to make this really FUN, SUPER COOL album.

Here are the pics!

On the cover I just put this fun little sticker and added a fancy flower I got at hobby lobby in the scrapbooking owl and some simple brown buttons.

For the binding on my album I simply used some canvas fabric I found at walmart. I got a quarter of a yard and just cut a strip to fit and hot glue it onto the album to cover up the edge.

This was my favorite page to create as I got to play around with my glimmer mist! I am SOOOOOO addicted to that now.

This tag I embellised with stickles.

For the most part I kept my pages and tags pretty simple since pictures will take up most of the spaces. When I get pictures I will probably embellish each page a little further.
This book has a total of 26 mats for photos, 8 pockets on the pages that holds tags, and 8 tag pockets. So you can possible put in 58 photos if you put pictures on both sides of all the tags! THATS WHAT I CALL ALOT OF REAL ESTATE!
Happy Mini Album Creating!
