ABC Challenge at Tombow

Today I have a fun Baby Boy Paper Bag album that I created for my cousin’s precious baby James David Prouty. My cousin has decorated his baby room in green, burnt orange and chocolate. It was so much fun to make an album in these colors. I just went thru all my stash of papers, stickers and embellishments and picked out everything that matched and then started cutting papers to fit my paper bag album.

I used Tombow’s Mono Adhesive Power Bond to put the album together. I like the extra strength of this adhesive and use it on my albums. For the ribbons, I used Mono Adhesive Dots, Roller. There are lots of pages and photos. I hope you enjoy viewing them all.

I typed his name on cardstock, then punched with an oval word punch, then ribbon cut the ends.

Here is an angle view of the whole album:

And here are the inside pages: right inside the front cover:
