Itsy Bisty Spider Paperbag Album

I was recently commissioned to make a paper bag album based on a children's book called The Itsy Bitsy Spider. I was thrilled when i looked through the book! It is adorable and completely illustrated with paper piecing! I knew I wanted mine to resemble it as closely as possible! the mom who requested this book told me it is her little girls' very favorite and they wanted to capture that memory and combine it with photos of her. I hope she likes it!

Look at this little red spider! Isn't he a riot! I used the Ornament punch for his body and the small oval for his feet.





I used a large variety of supplies for this book. I started it while visiting my parents in Memphis, so I pulled from what my mom had. Then, when i got home I finished up with a large variety of SU punches and cardstock.




Each page reflects the illustrations in the book.



This one has goggles on the spider!




This is him falling down the drain again with his umbrella proving completely useless!





A trampoline on the left page...



The right page is a tent... It lifts up to show lots of space for photos.







This is my favorite page! Look at him in the underwear! Ha!




Look at that cute little owl punch at use!








When you make something like this for someone as an order, you never know if it is what they pictured. I adore the book and hope she will too!


Have a great Tuesday!
