Paper Bag Albums
Paper bag albums are definitely one of my absolute favorite types of mini scrapbooks to make! I think it has everything to do with all the pockets and pullouts you can incorporate into them.
The typical paper bag scrapbook is made with lunch bags, but for more mini scrapbook fun you could try making one with the follow types of bags:
Basic Directions for Making Paper Bag Scrapbooks
Directions for Smaller Paper Bag Album (ATC Pockets option)
Ice cream bags, flat gift bags, gift bags with handles, Chinese take out bags, larger "Keep it Cold" bags from the grocery stores (Wal Mart has them on the end of the freezer aisles), large grocery bags (with or without handles).
Below are links to directions on how to make a couple of variations on paper bag scrapbooks, as well as some theme ideas.
Theme Ideas for Paper Bag Scrapbooks
I like to create themes for each paper bag scrapbook I make. Some specific theme ideas are included here. The ones that are underlined link to examples with those themes. Others are on my wanting to do in the near future list.
Seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer)
As you can see, there is no limit to themes you can come up with for paper bag mini scrapbooks.
I have also made birthday cards from paper bags. I just use one bag instead of three. These are a big hit. Again, you could make cards out of any of the above themes, as well as any holiday of your choice. I'm thinking of making this year's Christmas cards out of paper bags. Oh, too much fun!
