Paper bag scrapbook

I found this idea on Katies Nesting Spot on which she links to the original creator. I loved the idea the minute I saw it. I have seen other paper bag scrapbook ideas but I really loved how this one opened and had lots of pockets. I assembled the paper bags first like this:
It is a good idea to add a little glue in between the layers to help hold it together. Once I picked out my paper to use, I cut a piece for the center first, attached it with double sided tape and then used an eyelet in each corner to hold it all together. After I had done this I counted up how many mini pages I could make and realized this would be perfect to make a scrapbook of every month of Small fry's life. So here is what I created. (I didn't take a picture of every page)

I really love the idea of mini scrapbooking. They can be made rather quickly. You don't have to worry about trying to squeeze a bunch of photos in (your choice is limited, which can be a very good thing sometimes), they don't require a lot of supplies and don't take up a lot of room. I have plenty of large scale scrapbooks either in the works or waiting to be done but these are totally manageable. Love the idea. Anyone can do this.
