Paperbag album and trinket box – Aideen Fallon

Hi everybody,

Today is Aideen‘s turn to show us something fun and funky.

This is what she says:

“Here is a little album and trinket box I made for my friend Melissa for her birthday.”

What you will need:

Paper bags


Configurations box


DIY thickers and glitter

Various embellishments

Step 1

I removed some of the boxes out of the Tim Holtz configurations and cut paperbags to fit to make a mini album in the back section.


Step 2

I used these fun Prima papers and paint dabber in Raspberry as Mel likes bright fun colours!!


Step 3 

I covered all the bags in the papers.


Step 4

Adding tape just to the edges of the ‘foot’ of the bags to make each one a pocket page.


Step 5

I was able to add a little tag to each paper bag and I painted up all the edges of the album and the tags!


Step 6

Using DIY Thickers on my craft sheet I wrote out Mel’s name.


Step 7

I then covered the letters in the cool super luminous glitter!!


Step 8

I did the same with the alphas for the album title.


This is a very fun and funky mini album. It make a fantastic gift to Mel for sure!

We hope you like it and git inspired by Aideen’s idea.

Happy Crafting,

Crafting Ireland Team
