Here are the basic steps to creating a Paper Bag Album. Paper lunch bags are used to create a book which is then morphed, thru your creative prowess, into a unique scrapbook album for your family photo’s.

The paper bag book phenomena has now come to include “Concept” books, Altered Art Books, and “Fat Books”. Each of those will be covered at on later posts, this first post is a basic “How to” instruction article.

  1. Take 3 paper bags and align together. Fold in half, creating a booklet.
  2. Sew down the center on the fold line. You may, at this stage, punch holes (3 or 5) along the binding.
  3. Cut Scrapbook paper to size, and glue onto the pages.
  4.  Embellish and Adorn the book.
