I had a hankering to make a paper bag album. I love the crunchy noise they make. But what to make it for or use it for or put in it??? I was doing some Kindergarten prep with Jake and decided an alphabet book would be an awesome project. Josh could use it too. And they would both enjoy the crunchy noise it makes when you turn the pages.
So here it is....and ABC Book.
First I folded the bags in half and creased the fold with a bone knife. I opted to not stack them inside each other as I need to use several to fit the whole alphabet. I didn't want that waterfall like edge from using too many.
To cover the pages I used several different sheets from various October Afternoon Collections....Fly a Kite, Seaside, Daydream, 5 & Dime, Sidewalks, Schoolhouse and a shape sticker sheet from the Report Card Collection.
|lots of crunchy goodness|
|wrong haircolor but so reminds me of my boys when they read|
For the letters I used some Core'dinations cardstock and my Silhouette. I sanded the letters and adhered them in the book.
|oh..Lean Cuisine is on sale and I have coupons!|
I had bigger visions for this album...pull out tags since the bag has a premade pocket...but then realized a 2 and 5 year old would be using it and kept it simple. Pretty excited with the outcome. It looks really cool.
Used my Cinch to punch holes in it but decided on two binder rings to hold it all together.
Thanks for looking!
