Paper bag mini tutoral

Hi guys thanks for stopping by and leaving fab comments.
I made a mini album from 4 white paper bag.
here is how I did it.
I used the Fairy Rhymes A4 papers from Prima,
You need 4 bags these are from The hobby house
they are 16.5cm long 9cm wide,

These 2 are 21cm long for the joining of the bags
The 4 below are 11.5cm

 I then cut papers to the size of the bag for front and back,

Here I cut 2 bits 12.5cm and 1 at 4 inches

Now putting it together take 2 bags one with flap up and other one down,
then  take one 21cm paper and stick down so it joins them together,
Do the same with the other 2,

Then take both bits you just covered put together so white bits showing
put the 4 inch piece on the 2 flaps, Then add the 12.5 cm pieces under the flaps,
And do the same with the other bits add them to the bag,
Now take the flaps to make pockets use a bit of wet glue on sides only and theres your pockets.
add papers to back and front then do as you wish to front add some tags, in paper opening at tops,

 I used lace for the cover on the spine you can use paper if you wish.
I also used a punch that cuts half circle,

 I used pices from my stash.

Hope you like it and please give it a try.
Love & Hugs
