Finished my little ATC pocket book

I finished my little ATC book the other day and wanted to post the photos of it. I am not sure I can upload all the pictures here, but I'm going to try. A couple of the photos came out a little blurry unfortunately. I need my daughter to help me a little on getting better photos. She's just so busy.

I finished the book off with another one of those Teresa Collins Perfect Closures. I am hooked on those things. I did lose two of my pockets (first one and last one) when I connected the closure, but I just love the way it holds the book together. Without it the book wouldn't even stay closed.

I made it with paper bags, but it is a little smaller than a regular paper bag album. It actually only measures 4-1/4 by 5-1/4". I cut off the serrated edge of the paper bag, and the flat bottom of the bag.

ATC Paper Bag Pocket Book

I bought the supplies to make this ATC paper bag pocket book well over a year and a half ago! Do any of you do that? It isn't my intent when I start out, but time just flies, and then I forget about the project and other projects come up. Well, I am finally making it and it feels so good! I'll post the photos of the whole thing when I am done. I've got the base of the book done, the pull outs still need some cards and the first two-page spread is done.

Paper Dolls Paper Bag Album

This week I was finally able to work on the round robin swap for the mini books Yahoo! group I am in. We are each choosing our own theme and then sending it on to the other members who joined in this swap. I chose paper dolls for my theme. I have included the actual dolls and wardrobe on my website for anybody who might want to create a similar paper bag book for themselves. The link above will take you to my website where you can download the paper dolls.
