Once Upon A Time paper bag album

A while ago I was making paper bags so that I could make a paper bag album like the one from Kathy Orta
My album has a hard backed cover and 5 pages inside.  Each page has a pop in book and lots of space for photographs.  I added lots of bling as C is a happy ex-Essex girl :)

 A second album for E is well on it's way to completion, I may even make one of these for myself..


This little brooch is one of a few I have made to use as part of a workshop.  The felt background is hand made and has some hand stitching.  The copper frame has been blanket stitched and then the thread woven through a bead.  The hardest thing about this piece was finding a bead with a hole big enough to get the needle and multiple strands of thread through.
