Paper Bag Albums

Two ways to make these albums.  The first is with the middle pages shorter as seen above.
Need 6 lunch sacks

3 Cardstock strips 1 ½ inch x 5 ½ inches
Scrap paper
Fold the long part of the bag behind the bag bottom keeping the edges even

Repeat with remaining 5 bags
Glue Bottoms to Bottoms (Make sure you really get the edges to stick)
Using the cardstock strips (1 ½ inch x 5 ½ inches(width of bag) fold each strip in half (hotdog fold)
Attach each strip to the Side B
Make Binding:

Using a piece of Cardstock cut 4 inches x (Width of bag) 5 ½ inches
Fold 1 ½ inches from each end (This gives a 1 inch binding)
Cover Front and back cover with paper then attach the binding
Decorate Each page as you’d like!

Both can be made as follows
