Whether you’re a fan of mini albums already or a complete novice, paper bag books are a great way to experiment with new scrapbooking techniques. These crafty gems really are made from ordinary paper bags, and we know you’ll love this gorgeous design by Julie Kirk as much as we do! “Paper bags can be found in supermarket and craft stores, and they’re affordable enough that you can play around with new ideas and styles without feeling the pressure,” says Julie. “You needn’t only create them for special occasions, but capture lots of everyday moments too!” Julie’s designed this little book to celebrate winter’s charms. “On cold dark days this bright album is a way to remind me that winter can be bright and beautiful too,” she explains.
It couldn’t be easier to create your own book from scratch. Julie shows you her layering and stitching technique for making this book in this free project download, and you can use any kind of paper bags you like. Julie adds “What could be better at this time of year than some stress-free scrapbooking with a fun thrifty twist?”
