Cuttlebug Challenge #49 - Mini Albums

The next segment of Cuttlebug Challenge is to make a mini album in your party theme.
I almost didn't do this one, but then inspiration struck and a Paper Bag Book took shape!
(A tutorial for making a basic paper bag book can be found here.)
I don't have pictures for it yet (the party isn't till November), but I used a piece of card stock (3x4) as an imitation throughout the album.
Here's the cover of my Mini Birthday Album (cake clipart here)
The 1st two pages.....these give you the details and include a replica of the invitation
You see that tab on the side --- it's a page tucked into the pocket of the paper bag.
This picture illustrates how it slides out for viewing
 
 Here's the hidden page

Turn the page to see.....
 
The insert that matches this page is to the left

The next page - the flowers mirror the ones on the lg gift bag I made

The matching insert - baby image is also on lg gift bag
The back cover
Last insert

This is adorable!! We'll have to make paper bag albums sometime when we get together. (The kids would probably enjoy it, too!) I've tried to make them before, but I always get stuck and it doesn't turn out at all. Yours is fantastic and coordinates perfectly with everything else in your party!

So cute! I have to learn to make these. My husband and I are about to take a trip, but when I get back, I'm expanding my crafting horizons! ;)

Wow! It's so beautiful! I think it's great you could make such a lovely album and also leave place for the pictures. I always think it's impossible to make one without having the photos first.
