Default Paper bag albums

I'm sorry, I'm not sure where to put this.....I know some people make paper bag albums who aren't "scrappers" per se....so I didn't want to put it there...

Anyway, I would love to make a paper bag album but have never made anything other than a card. Well, I've made a box or two....lol....but nothing close to an album. I see lots of tutorials.....they are all so different .....I just don't know where to start. Do you have any tips.....or good tutorials....or links to your blogs showing one you've made? I'm sure this has been discussed before.....but not only am I paper bag album challenged, I'm also search engine challenged

I ironed the bags when I made some. It flattens the bag and makes it look more "crisp". You may want to look on ebay for ideas...they used to sell a lot of them on there.

Just start. Take the lunch bag and fold it in half and you'll get the idea. Ebay is the best place to see how they are done, and how much a few pages and paper can sell for. I love doing them and have given them as gifts often. I especially like to take a graduation announcment and cut it apart and add the school colors and or pictures I might have and then tuck money in one of the pockets.
Have fun.
