Paper Bag 'Classmate Autograph' Album

School is almost out for our kids here in the norteast and I wanted to create something special for my daughter. She will be attending school in NC next year and will miss her friends here in NY very much. I wanted to make this album for her so that her classmates could write some "goodbye" notes or possibly give her their phone numbers so that they can keep in touch. I found this fabulous tutorial from Follow the Paper Trail for making paper bag albums. Check it out HERE.
So, I started with the medium sized paper bags and created her album using the 'All About Girls' stack from DCWV.


Throughout the album, I used some Jolee's and K&Co Stickers.

I printed out a small class photo and glued it to a mat, added ribbon, and inserted it into the pocket I created. I am also going to add a photo of her teacher on the outside of the pocket.
If you haven't tried one of these paper bag albums yet, you are missing out. I had so much fun creating this! My daughter absolutely loves it and can't wait to have all her friends leave notes for her.
Pin It!
