Prima Tales of You and Me Mini Album
This Prima Tales of You and Me Mini Album was made out of chipboard and paper bags. I love crafting paper bag mini albums since they are so easy to make and you have ready-made pockets. However, when making one of these mini albums out of paper sacks, you have to get the best quality paper bags that you can get your hands on.
I highly recommend you stay away from the lunch bags that you find at the grocery store. Those rip quite easily and all of your hard work will be for nothing. I normally get my paper bags in the party goods section at Michael’s.
You will want to make your covers and spine out of chipboard, just as you would a regular mini album. This will help preserve the pages in between.
When making mini albums, I prefer to use good quality, strong double sided tape. My go-to double-sided tape is Scor-pal Scor-tape.
Decorating the spine of your paper bag mini album can be as simple or as extravagant as you want it. I side with simplicity on the spine. I think it’s easier to handle as you set your mini album down and turn the pages. In this case a flower trim does the trick for me!

Prima Tales of you and me can be found at Hobby Lobby. Elsewhere on line it’s discontinued or just too expensive. Hobby Lobby puts these at half off every other week just about, which is usually around 10.00 dollars.
