Wedding Paper Bag Album

Hola! I know it's been a while since my last post so here we go. This is a paper bag album that I made as a thank you for my Pastor and his family for helping with my wedding last summer. For instructions on how to make this type of paper bag album please visit Laura at www.followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com. You can also search followingthepapertrail on Youtube to see her videos. I really encourage you to check out her work, she is AMAZING!

The title I cut with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. I also used some pink satin ribbon on the left side which is actually left over from the ribbon that was used in my wedding.

This is one of the large tags I made for the album. On this side I glued down a dolie. I thought about glimmer misting them before I glued them down but I actually like them plain so it's not so distracting. On the other side is a picture from the wedding. One other style of tag I made consists of a picture of me and say my pastor and then on the other side I stamped a large journal image and journaled a special message to him. I did the same for his wife and their two kids (who were all a part of my wedding) so they all had their own special tag.

This a tag I made using my Cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes. The lace across the bottom holds the tag in place.

Here is another tag created the same way as above. The paper is Paper Studio and the sticker are Me and My Big Ideas. I know it's kinda hard to see but along the bottom there is a piece of gold ribbon holding the tag in place.

On the bottom left hand corner I used basic craft flowers to make a little bouquet.

Hope you enjoy this mini...this is the second one I've tried of this type. I will try to get pictures of the first one up. Until then, Happy Scrappin'! SB

  3. The little bouquet is adorable. I used similar flowers years ago as little pieces in my hair for prom, I had a rose patterned dress.
