ATC Paper Bag Mini

It's time for some more Heartfelt Creations inspiration and this week I created an ATC paper bag mini album.  Here is the front and back cover.  I've used a magnet under the ribbon for a closure.

I have included all the products and instructions for how this was constructed.

Instructions:  you can find a video tutorial to make the paper bag album here:  I used design paper to construct the cover. I also added some ribbon around the spine before I attached the pages. The images for the front and back were stamped on a photo mat from the design paper. Add embossing enamel and Stickles. Before attaching the front panel, add a magnet under the circle of the stamped design. Stamp and cut out another circle and add the other half of the magnet under this piece. Attach this to the top of the ribbon. Stamp and die cut the key, edge with the gold pen, add Nestabling. Attach the key to top of circle. Add lace and pearls. Stamp and die cut flowers and leaves, shape and add pearl. Add to front with stamens. The ATC cards are all cut 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". I used design paper to create a border around them that are cut 2 5/8" x 3 5/8". They are all colored with pencils and embellished with embossing enamel and Stickles.
