Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone for joining in the fun and for all your wonderful comments! It's been fun! *Winners were chosen randomly. Only one entry (your first) valid per person.
Stay tuned for more great crafts and another give-away (coming soon!).Below is a slide show of the full three albums (in order of preference) as per your requests.
A bit about my history with paper bag albums:
I used to be a frequent visitor to Creating Keepsakes message boards, a very busy, fun, active board for those who love scrapbooking. Everyone kept mentioning these 'paper-bag albums.' Long story short, I asked about them, made a few, thought they were very cute. After I introduced them to my friend Anisa, she pulled me into helping her do them for a Relief Society Super Saturday (a few hours of crafting and projects) and we prepared around 20.
Later on, we had a small boutique in my home where my cousin saw the cute albums we had to sell and pulled Anisa into helping her do them for a Young Women's camp craft. They prepared around 230!
We love to make them. They are a lot of fun. If you're interested in a tutorial, we're happy to provide. Just leave a comment and let us know.
