This is for the 4th of July holiday. It is made from either small brown or white paper bags or mini 6x6 album. It should be from three paper bags and each is decorated wtih a 4th of July theme and tied w/ribbons. All pages should be covered with a mat to cover most of the paper bag. You can use whatever type of embellishment/picture/ribbon/paper you wish.

You can place little tags, a note card, or a little something for your trade partner inside the bag openings.

This will be open to USA only. Do not forget to include the swap name and your user name on the card!

I will ban if I see multiple no-sends or have any other reason to believe you will not be a good swap partner. Newbies are welcome!! (but must have a filled out profile.)

Happy swapping to all! Contact me if you have any questions.

Will the mini 6x6 album be binded with brads or rings or just left loose for others to put it together?

1 Scrapper The album should be binded with brads, eyelets, ribbons or rings.

Thanks for asking

Do you have a picture of what this should look like? I am not quite understanding what this is. Thanks!

You can find instructions on google. Then type in Paper Bag Album Instructions in the search block. They are really easy to make.

I love making them - Hope to see you in the swap. Happy swapping - Linda

Paper bag albums are similar to chunky books, but use brown paper lunch bags as the base. Here's a site to show you how to make one. Make sure you scroll to the bottom for samples/ideas. Basically you take 3 paper bags, fold them in half and bind with ribbon, brads or whatever, then decorate. VERY EASY to make :)
