RRR Paper Bag Mini Album

There's something wonderful about paper bag mini albums that I just LOVE!  All that cuteness, sweetness and potential for storing precious family memories all in one adorable little book.  And it's SUPER easy with Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I started with two small kraft paper bags that I covered with patterned papers, embellished, and then bound using my Zutter Bind-It-All.  That gave me a total of 8 pages (too many to show you all the pages), but I'm sharing some highlights from this sweet Paper Bag Mini Album.
The bound edge has 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Ribbon strips that are torn and tied to the binding along with lengths of 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Holiday Snowflakes Ribbon, Burlap Center Stitch Red, and Burlap Center Stitch Green.  The cover also has a sweet White Flat Back Pearl from our amazing new Embellishments category.  Another thing I suggest for EVERYONE is Scor-Tape.  This amazing adhesive comes in several widths, and is great for cards, mini albums, and SO much more.  I encourage you to treat yourself to some new ribbons and goodies today from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and Scor-Tape is just one of those must-have items for every crafter.
As I mentioned, it's just too much to share all eight pages.  You'll see lots of sweet little ribbony tabs tucked in here and there including snippets of 1 1/2" Red Gingham Ribbon, Striped Green, and Burlap Center Stitch Red.  There are also lots of great pockets for photo and journalling tags, and plenty of places for tucking in precious memories.  You'll also see that I used a Decorative Bitty Bag on one of my tags so that I could tuck in another journalling card.
Really Reasonable Ribbon carries so many great ribbons, laces, trims, embellishments, flowers, and so much more to help you adorn a Paper Bag Album.  They're fun, easy, and make great little gifts for Christmas.
All those great layers of ribbons, papers, and sweet little touches to help you document and cherish family memories.  Why not try making a Mini Paper Bag Album for yourself.  I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have, and Really Reasonable Ribbon can help you find all the supplies you need.
Just look at all the yummy ribbons!  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries the sweetest trims to adorn your next project.  And since Christmas is approaching, this is a great time to either treat yourself, or make a "Wish List" for your hubby so that you'll be sure to get what you truly LOVE this Christmas .....RIBBONS!  And don't forget about the FUN CHALLENGE taking place now on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
Today is a great day to try something new.  Paper bag albums are easy and fun, and you'll love having a place to tuck in all those sweet Christmas memories, and save them for years to come.  And Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect place to treat yourself to some fabulous Christmas goodies.  Why not shop today?
