Mini Album Challenge...

Friday, September 7, 2012

I recently created my first paper bag album and want to create a few more. Others have said they'd like to create some kind of album too. I have seen albums made out of paper bags, envelopes, manilla file folders... It can be any size, any type, any theme, using papers, paints, etct! They can be ACEO albums, Art Journals, Mini Photo Albums, anything you want


Just add your link below this post so others can see easily... there are no prizes for this challenge, just have fun.

Some helpful links you may want to check out...

WIP for the album above here and here.

Oh Pam! Just felt inspired by your idea. How about doing the same with envelopes? I have a big stavk from charities (I always donate online, but they send them anyway). Then you have a readymade pocket on one side!

Christine, great idea! I can change this to be any type of album if you want... I have seen a lot of cool albums, even 1 made from a manila file folder, and I love the mini albums I have seen too!

What fun! I didn't know that the albums could be made out of any kind of envelope, too! So many cool ideas for projects here!

I'm in, now to get started. Glad I have a month as I need to so just a little shopping for sacks.

Hope you all have as much fun as I did! And if you can't find envelopes you like and want to make one from envelopes, search the internet there are a ton of templates for creating your own!

What have you started? Finished one - starting another...:D

Lee Pierce said...

OK Pam - I am done! It was fun and a learning experience, too. I have a new appreciation for handmade books and journals :D

Thank you for participating Lee! I'm still not completely done my Halloween one yet! Not feeling all that crafty right now lol

Finally able to show mine, or rather the first one I made which was a gift. Now I am off to make myself one!

For those using them for aceos, I am interested to know how you plan to attach them into the album?

Craftymoose Crafts said...

Thanks Pam (and Lee) for the info on attaching the aceos! I just saw it on Lee's blog!

Debbie,

I am so glad you were able to participate. I need to get at it and finish my Halloween album.

Your welcome :)

Ok girls, I finally finished my paper bag album. I had to delete it and re-add the new link, it wouldn't let me change the link address.
