Make A Fun Album with GlueArts


Hi everyone!! 
Jaime Warren here with you today with a fun little project for that child or teen in your life!! My girls love to make paper bag mini albums for their personal albums - Jill for her American Girl dolls, Hailey for her animals, etc.



I start out by punching two holes in the paper bags, right along the edge. I layered each page with two different patterned paper sheets, attaching with the Glue Glider Pro. Using the U Cut It Foam I attached my embellishments giving them extra dimension. I used a combination of sticker embellishments, die cuts and chipboard.

 I will give my girls scraps and embellishments that I have purged from my stash to use in their albums. It's the perfect way to de-stash and help your kids get creative! The best part is that they can create one for anything and everything.

 My girls love going back through their albums, reading their journaling, looking at their photos. I love how inexpensive it is - if one page isn't quite turning out how they want, grab another lunch bag - easy peasy!

Supplies:
GlueArts Glue Glider PRO+ Perma Tac
GlueArts U Cut It Foam
GlueArts Adhesive Squares

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hope you guys have enjoyed this simple kids/teen project!! This can be made for boys...perhaps to scrapbook a baseball game they attended, or maybe they just finished a boy scout camping trip, photos from a favorite weekend...you name it!!

  1. This great - I love that you help your girls be creative and scrap some of their own favorite things... it's true, boys can get into it too, my son loves playing with my supplies and making cards. Over the break he made us little cute notes (glitter everywhere...
    ) and he likes to embelish his tags on his school stuff.

  13. I can't see the photos either, but it's a great idea for kids. I'm thinking this would make a good project for Sunday School or for my own kids with a "my favorite..." theme.
