Paper Bag Mini Album Tutorial

By My Sisters Scrapper

For my “self-portrait” I decided to go back to my very first series tutorial that really started me on my journey of mini albums and teaching. I created a fun vertical paper bag mini album using the beautiful Graphic 45 Kaleidoscope collection. I love the colors and the vibrancy of the imagery. I made a few changes to my project with some tips that I have learned over the years since my first vertical paper bag mini. This mini album has lots of interaction and even some fun upcycled tags.  One of the fun elements about this collection is the black and cream imagery but then you see the elements that are vividly colored. I wanted to bring out that element in a small way which is showcased on the inside front cover. The “color your world’ element is black and cream but when you pull the tab located at the top the image switches to the vibrant color palette.  I also upcycled some of the Graphic 45 tag shaped packaging for my large inserts at the tops of the pages.” ~My Sisters Scrapper
