Mini Treat Bag Pocket Album ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

I don't know any child who doesn't love to look at pics of themselves! Here I've made a small keepsake album full of 'leftovers' that didn't need whole page to themselves in the big album. The Mini Treat Bag thinlit is such a perfect size and comes with a whole lot of extra dies you can use for trims. Hope you like this! More details below.

A big hello to you if you've clicked through from our January Artisan Showcase on Facebook :)

I'll tell you what I did and you can adapt from there! Hope you recreate these and have fun. 

6 mini treat bags - 2x for covers (designer paper) and 4x for pages (made from the packing paper we get in our Stampin' Up! boxes)
Score 1/2" up from the bottom to create a place for them to bend. This line/bend serves as a stopper for your pocket inserts too.
Punch holes and thread together. 
My pocket inserts measure 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". The front one with the message is 3" x 4 1/2". 
Angle two corners of the inserts, punch a hole and thread some twine through for your 'handle'. 
Fill it with your favs.

  5. What a sweet gift. I'm never sure of what to do with those photos that didn't make the cut. :). I usually just put them back in the envelope and forget them, but this is a super cute idea! What a great little reminder showing your kids how much you love them.
