Tutorial | Paperbag Mini Album | Beginner Friendly

Today I have a paperbag tutorial to share with you today. This one is beginner friendly and all you need are 6 paperbags and your favourite papers to get started.

I haven’t provided instructions as everyone will have different sized paperbags – in the tutorial I show you how to measure and calculate the sizes you’ll need to make the front cover, binding and page matting. I have used the absolutely gorgeous papers from First Edition (Trimcraft) called Sweet Nothings.

Here are some close ups of the album and the tutorial is further down – happy crafting everyone.


Thank you for dropping by today. If you have enjoyed today’s project, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any future projects. You can also find me on Facebook and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have – I try to reply to as many comments as I can.

  1. Hi Helen,
    Loved your tutorial for the paper bag album. I was always afraid to make one because I did not know what I was doing whatsoever. I was wondering if you have one filled with pictures, writing, memorabilia, etc. finished that you would be willing to share with all of us. Thanks again, it was wonderful.
    Best wished for a happy weekend.

  2. Hello Helen !
    Merci pour le tuto de ton album.
    J’ai des sacs et je vais m’en faire un, je le trouve très sympa cet album .
    Bon dimanche.

  3. Enjoyed this tutorial. Amazingly easy to follow. I was always apprehensive about making this type of an album and now excited to give it a try. Thank you for your time.

  4. I really enjoyed your tutorial. I especially liked that you did not cut out any of the little mistakes so we could see how you corrected them. I have more confidence that I could make one of these albums. I can’t wait to try it.
