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.

Paper Bag Mini Album Ideas

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!
