Tutorial | Paperbag Trifold Folio | Farmhouse Theme | Beginner Friendly

Today, we are using a beautiful set of papers and embellishments from Nitwit Collections called Farmhouse. This is an amazing digital collection and I can see this being used in so many projects!

The paper bag album we’re making today has no binding system, so it’s super easy. Plus, you only need 3 paper bags to make to make it! You can make a bunch of these in no time at all and make a perfect gift.

All the measurements are down below for the lunch bags I have used – link for the lunch bags, paper collection and glue are down below. Also, if you wish to see the Farmhouse collection in full detail, there is a video at the bottom of this page that shows you everything.

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. Love your folio Helen. I fell in love with this collection when I watched the video Nitwit did when the collection was released. Such a beautiful collection! And your folio is just beautiful too! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Helen, this Farmhouse folio is perfect for what I need! As usual you did a brilliant job of it. I am having great difficulty finding the wood plank background you used. Can you help me with that? I didn’t see it in the Farmhouse Collection. Thank you!

    • Hi there – So glad you like the album! There are two styles of the wood plank background and they can be found in the FQB collection (the FQB is my favourite!). Hope that helps 🙂
