The 1st Mini Album Monday Paper Bag Baby Bottle

Hi Everybody.

Welcome!!!  So my planned 1st Mini Album Monday has turned into a Mini Album Wednesday for this month.  Hubs and I recently took in a foster child and it has been a rough couple of days.  Plus, being super slammed at work led to no free time for other things.

Anywho, the mini that I have to share with you  today is one that I am truly proud of.  I have scoured the net and YouTube looking for a mini like this and I have found nothing.  If any of you know of one please let me know.  Today's Mini is a Paper Bag Baby Bottle mini Album.  The tags are shaped as baby bottle and can hold a 4x6 photo.  I am so so proud of this album!!!  I love the way it turned out and I have plans to make more.  It is so super quick and easy and is so much fun to make.

Let me show you what I did.  ** WARNING - there are LOTS of pictures!**

This is the cover of the album.  A cover photo can tuck behind the scroll.  The scroll itself came from the Theresa Collins Sophisticated Cricut Cartridge .

The spine of the album

First pages and a sample of the tags that are present throughout the album.

Each paper bag hold tags that look like this one just with different paper.

Next two pages

Accordion style fold out photo page

Next two pages: the green page is a double slider page. Tab on the top pulls out for two photos and the tab on the side pulls out for two photos.

Small pocket to hold two tags from the paper collection.

Next two pages. The only thing with the second page is that I with I had gold photo corners that had white tabs instead of black. But with the photo in this spot you can't see the black.

Next two pages with an accordion style fold out photo mat and white photo corners.

Last page and back cover of album.

Watch the Video on Youtube

I really wanted to make a baby album that looks just like a bottle and could stand and be displayed opposed to laying down.  I used a total of 6 bags and a chipboard back cover. I will post a video on the album here and on YouTube so you can see it in real time (well sort of real time).

Anywho, here it is!  The first Mini Album Monday (though it is Wednesday) project.

Thank You all so much for stopping by and I pray you enjoyed the latest creation and first mini album of the year.  I pray you all are having a great day and I will see you all in the next one.  Bye!!
