I am so excited to finally show off pictures of the project for my newest class at Michaels. The class shows you how to basically turn basic paper bags into a very cool scrapbook/photo album that you can easily decorate for any number of occasions.
I took the All Girl paper pad at Michaels and made my book into a book perfect for a teenage girl. But I have plans to make some for Halloween, teacher's gifts and Christmas presents.
Each book has three "pages" with three small pockets and six larger pockets. I put two double-sided cards in each larger pocket for pictures or journaling.
The class is $25, and all you need to bring are paper bags, paper and adhesive. And buy lots of bags -- trust me, once you make one you will be addicted!
You also can see (and admire) the completed sample in the classroom at the Michaels craft store in Bellevue, NE.
I also am taking orders for custom books, made with any theme you can imagine. The cost will be $15 for each book. Email me if you are interested. Eventually, I will be selling them in my Etsy shop.
