(you may have to copy and paste the images in another window)

SUPPLIES:
-Paper lunch Bags (any size)
-adhesive
-paper trimmer
-stylus
-hole punch
-bone folder (or some other way to crease)

PAPER BAG ALBUM
Step 1: Fold and crease bags both directions at the base flap. This iswhere each page of the album is going to fold/turn. You can do as manyas you like. I did 4 bags, which means this album will be 6 pages, andfront/back cover.

There should be two score lines for the edge. Use a stylus and yourpaper trimmer to score the paper.

You should have two clean score lines for easy folding.

Fold the lines, so that you can mark where your next cut will be.
