Bird Chipboard and Paper Bag Album

Well, here it is! This finished product! I just love the colors and textures in this little album. Here is the front cover, with chipboard bird.
I used a metal ring fastener to hold the pages together. Ribbons were wrapped around the ring along with this metal key.
Tearing and ripping paper is a must, as there is no right or wrong when making these little albums-you can be as creative and as detailed as you want!
So, now that you have seen the front cover, let's take a look at the inside. The chipboard bird on the front cover opens up to reveal more room for pictures just inside the front cover-it's like a secret door!
Here is a view of the album from the side-you can see all of the pockets from the paper bag! I like to use metal attachments and clips to hold the pages shut.
Here are more of the inside pages...
You'll notice many small tags inside the album itself. These smaller tags are great for journaling...
Here are some of the larger tags that go inside the pockets of the paper bag (fronts and backs). Larger pictures fit perfect on these tags!
Here is the back cover...
This album will look great on a little shelf that sits at the top of our, what pictures shall I add to it? Pictures or not, it is pretty to look at! Thanks for taking the time to check out my newest paper bag creation!

Shadow Box Retirement Gift

Have you tried scrapbooking with shadow boxes yet? Our Principal retired this past school year. On the last day of school, I took a picture of her and created this shadow box. It was presented to her at the retirement party. It is fun to coordinate the paper, ribbon, stickers, and other embellishments when layering and decorating the box! These shadow boxes make great gifts for any occasion!
