Another Paper Bag Mini

Today I'm sharing a paper bag mini album
that I made for a friend.

Have you ever made something for a fellow crafter?

It's a little nerve-wracking!

At first I tried not to put too much of my "style" into it, but I eventually gave up and just had fun with it.

Front cover.

1st and 2nd pages.

Tags for journaling.

These tuck right into the "pockets" of the album.

Tri-fold for photos.

3rd and 4th pages.

Lots of mini tags. LOVE that butterfly.

Another tri-fold for smaller photos.

5th and 6th pages.

More tags and ephemera. 

7th and 8th pages.

You got it, more tags!
