1 crafty take on a Project Runway challenge, Part 3

In the post last Wednesday, I spoke about how much I love Project Runway. In a tribute to the show I've brought back an project made using unconventional materials, or in this case, the utilitarian brown paper bag.

Check back to Part 1 and Part 2 of our project.  In today's post we'll see part 3 of our "All About Me" Paper Bag Album.

The project was created using a class kit. I'll give you all the measurements in the video as we create each portion, so just use up your stash. These are some of the items that I have used in my project; they are just a suggestion of some of the items you may want to use.

  • Three (3) Large paper lunch bags (when folded they should be approximately 6” x 6”)
  • Two (2) 1" book rings
  • Coordinating cardstock
  • Coordinating patterned papers
  • Coordinating rub-ons
  • Ribbon, tulle, lace
  • Brads
  • Silk flowers, large and small
  • Inkpad, brown or distress
  • Photo corners, chipboard or regular
  • Bling, rhinestones, or jewels
  • Tissue paper flowers
  • 4 regular sized Manila tags
  • 5 small Manila tags
  • 3 jewelry tags
  • String or DMC floss
  • Various phrase stickers
  • Vellum quotes
  • Swirl clips
Tools: Paper trimmer, scissors, craft knife, dry and wet adhesive, stapler and staples, corner rounder, regular hole punch or Crop-a-Dile.

Part 3 includes creating pages 7 - 10 and creating the tags.

Next up for the blog? Let's go over some All About Me topics, just in case you are inspired to create your own "All About Me" scrapbook. Just think...what if you had a scrapbook about your great grandmother or grandma? Wouldn't that just be so priceless? I'd love to know my grandmother's daily routine (think Project Life) or thoughts and aspirations (All About Me). What you do and create now may be read and viewed generations from now. I think future generations would be very grateful to be in possession of something so unique and created by YOU!!
