Lunch Sack Mini Album

The days seem to be just flying by at the moment, and there don't seem to be enough hours in them either!
I promised to show you the Paper Bag Mini Album that I made using the Mini Lunch Sacks (on page 21 in the Mini Catalogue). I made mine into a Gratitude Album. I have so many things in my life to be grateful for, and I think like most people I sometimes take them for granted. So this album is filled with quotations about gratitude and photos of special people in my life, and it's something I can flip through when I need a gentle reminder about how many blessings I have *smile*
Here's the cover, embellished with autumn leaves cut out using the Leaves Die on the Big Shot in Autumn Spice DSP:

I've used 3 Mini Lunch Sacks to make the album and each one can be opened up, so you can slip little mementos or some journalling inside:

The other pages are just the Autumn Spice DSP (it is a specialty paper and is cardstock weight, so it's perfect for projects like this)
Here are the rest of the pages (you should be able to click on them to see a larger version, and read the quotes):

I held it all together using my Crop-a-dile to punch 2 holes and then setting 2 Jumbo eyelets to the front, and 2 more to the back. This holds it securely and gives it a neat finished look too. The ribbon is just to pretty it up!

It was a fun project to make, and didn't take too long either. Hope you like it!
