Paper Bag Album for Austin

My oldest son turned 9 today!!! I still remember the night or rather wee morning hours he was born. I will share a bit because I love the memory! He was breach and my hubby and I were sitting in bed talking to my belly. Telling him "turn, turn" LOL! We were rubbing it rather hard then I felt a trickle.... my water had broke. We both thought we had done something but that wasn't true.. but hey we were new at this! I got rushed to the hospital where he was delievered by C-section.

Ok here is his album and instructions:

I glued the flap (from the part that is the bottom of the bag) down,folded in half, then punched holes in bags.

Strings for binding. Tied through holes.
