"File Tab" paper bag mini album tutorial....
First off take and cut off 1/8" off the opened end of the bag to get rid of the little squigglies. Then measuring from the BOTTOM of the bag up, score at 5 1/2" and fold the top of the in the opposite direction AWAY from the factory bottom flap as shown in the picture below....
So now what you will need as far as chipboard and pattern paper for your cover. It is as follows:
(2) 5 " x 5 3/4"
(1) 2 " x 5"
Pattern paper for the OUTSIDE cover
(2) 7 1/2" x 6" butting the paper together at the center where the 2" spine is
Pattern paper for the INSIDE lining
(2) 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" and again butting those papers up in the middle at the spine
For the Inside pockets in the front and back covers
(2) 4" x 5" pieces of pattern paper
the tags for those pockets need to be 4 1/8" x 4 3/4"
Now really all that you have to do is add the file folder tabs in the locations like you see in my completed album and embellish it and add pictures and your good to go.
I did make the flowers on the front cover but I'm sure that everyone has seen how those are made before numerous times so I want bore you with that.
I hope that I haven't forgotten anything majorly important for this tutorial. I was at my wits end just trying to get it on here for you all. If I see that I've missed a step or if one of you all see that I have then please by all means let me know so that I can change it or add more information.
Thanks and Happy Scrapping!
