DCWV/Tombow Spring Fling Blog Hop

Welcome to the DCWV/Tombow Spring Fling Blog hop!

This week, DCWV and Tombow have teamed up to spread a little bit of spring fever.  Both design teams are excited to show you just what we have done with the My Sunshine and Chickadee stacks from DCWV, and some amazing adhesive products from Tombow. 

If you have come here from (list the person before you in the hop) then you're on track! If not, you should go back to the Tombow blog (include link - http://blog.tombowusa.com/) and start today’s leg of the hop from there!


I decided to create a mini album out of paper bags for my project today. I just love making mini albums this way, they are so simple to make and they give you a lot more compartments for hidden tags for photos & journaling.

I used DCWV's "My Sunshine" Stack along with some of my favorite Tombow adhesives.

To make a paper bag album, all you need are a few paper bags. I like to use some of the plain kraft lunch bags along with some patterned little midy bags. I chose chevron kraft bags, I thought they would go well with this stack. 

Fold all of your bags in half and glue them together by alternating types of bags in each layer. 

Add some binding rings to the spine and cut some patterned paper about 5x5 inches. I decided to change my papers after I cut them, this stack is full of so many beautiful prints, it's hard to decide which to use! The possibilities are endless!

After you get the album assembled, glue down your papers and add some ribbons & embellishments. 


Be sure to visit all the projects featured this week and leave a comment for your chance to win!  We will be giving away both the My Sunshine and Chickadee stacks to 2 lucky readers, and one amazing package of Tombow Adhesive including NEW Stamp Runner Permanent Adhesive, NEW Stamp Runner, Dot Pattern Adhesive,  MONO Multi Liquid Glue, NEW Power Tabs and MONO Glue Stick, 0.77 oz to one other lucky reader!  The more you comment, the more chances you have to win!

Now, head on over to Erin on the DCWV Blog to see what kind of spring craftiness she has in store!
