A New Paper Bag Album

I'm always amazed at how fast I can make these paper bag albums and then be stuck for (12) months trying to decide how to embellish the cover. The fan folded flowers were made using my Scor-Pal. I used a twelve inch strip of paper in widths of 2 inches, 1 1/2 inches and 1 inch. I scored them at 1/4 inch for each flower.

The leaves and flourishes were made using the Cricut. I am just learning how to use this fantastic cutting machine and everything I do is an experiment. I am learning to keep notes so I don't make the same mistakes over and over again.

The pages of this album are made using  small brown paper bags.  I used card stock to cover the pages. The photo mats were made  from gold and black  textured card stock. The fancy edge was made using a border punch.
The flower shaped photo mats and journal pages were made using the Cricut .
