Thank You!





Hi Everyone!!
Finally, I have internet (it's not working the best or the fastest, but at least for the moment it is working) Yippee!! Thank you all so so much for the wonderful comments and best wishes!! I wasn't able to get my Paper Bag Album posted on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog for my 10 am spot, so I decided to just post it here.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with a Paper Bag Album - the Album itself is made of 4 to 5 Paper Bags. Ironed, then folded in half, then stacked together to make the Album!! You can then sew it at the binding to reinforce the the durability, and punch holes to add ribbons (or any other chose of embellishment, such as Cord, yard, rings, etc). Then you just got to each page and embellish as little or as much as you wish!!
Hope you all enjoyed it!!

I was looking for your paper bag album! Curious: where does the paper bag fit? The album is adorable, by the way. Wasn't sure about where the bag fit, though. Glad I found your blog, though!

Great project. I guess you can tuck things into the open end of the bag, like pockets, but what about the other bottom end of the bag?
