To start my project, I cut/embossed the end of the paper bag using some Spellbinders Edgeabilities - Classic Scallop and Classic Decorative Inserts Four. Then I cut up both sides of my bag like this.......
Now its time to decorate this little bag. I used some pink cardstock to cover the front, back and the two inside pages. I decorated the front of my bag using the small rose from Rose Garden. I stamped the rose onto pink cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and fussy cut them out. I used the Small XOXO to decorate the Imperial Gold Labels Four die template. Plus I added some bling and a paper doilie to give it that vintage look I was going for. Here is a close-up!
Here is the inside of my bag. I stamped the "Love" and "Happy" from Remember The Moments set onto a couple of die cuts that came with this Pink Paislee London Market paper. I plan on adding some pictures of my daughter's so that my mom has a nice little brag book plus she will know how much we love her!!
Hope this has given you a new idea for a paper bag album. I can't take credit for the idea because I saw something similar on this YouTube Video but that project was a whole large album with lots of pages and such. I didn't want my album to be so big, so I used the idea to split the bag and just make it a card.
