Haunted Mini Album By Yvonne Blair

Hi there....are you ready for Halloween?  It's almost here. We have stocked up on Candy and are ready for trick or treaters to ring the doorbell.  I love seeing all the costumes and the giggles.  
In honor of Halloween I decided to do a little mini album or brag book to capture the memories.
For the mini I used Teresa's new treat bags.  These little things are so versatile! I have used them for pages in mini's and decided why not make a mini out of the bags! It makes a perfect pocket to tuck more pics into.
I used a combination of the polka dot bags and the clear ones.  I like the idea of being able to see the inserted picture through the bag.  Each bag has a photo mat with a tab.  
 I bound the book with two inch strips by the height of the bag.  I cut those and then scored them in half so they are a one inch hinge so to speak. 
 On this page I cut one of the file folders so it could also be a fold out.  
Who doesn't love a little interactivity going on, wink. 
 A view of the file folder opened. 
 This is the last page.  So the bags not only served as the pages but also as the front and back cover. 

 A little view from above so you can kind of see the binding.  
I hope everyone has a very happy Halloween and most importantly a safe one.  
Supplies used:
Masquerade Party decorative papers, treat bags, border die cuts, decorative brads, die cuts and stickers. 
Other-Tiny attacher, Xyron TC mega runner, pop dots. 
I have another little Halloween project over on my blog.
