Zippidee Gatefold Paper Bag Mini Album :)

I had so much fun putting this Gatefold Paper Bag Album together. It is another mini album that was created by Laura Dennison from Following the Paper Trail. You can view her youtube video on how to create this album. I have included 5 paper bags for each side and featured the Zippidee Paper Pack from Close to my Heart. This paper is PEFECT for Disney or for a summer full of memories at the park or playground!!

This is the front cover of the mini album. The sides are bound with duck cloth and inked to look rough!! I used an irresistables for the "fun" label which is embossed for a shiny effect. I also cut out a star and embossed it. I then created a lollipop flower out of B&T paper with a colonial white button & sparkle!!

The mini album has 2 covers. This is the top view of how the album opens up! Each paper bag has 2 ticket-style photo mats for pictures and the smaller bag section has one also for jounrnaling.

The album holds 20 large photo mats, 10 journal spots, & 5 decorative tickets!!!

Another view of the mini album opening!!

If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail!!  Thanks for looking :)
