I used the Graphic 45 French Country collection of papers that I found at my local Scrapbook Central store. This paper is so beautiful it begs to be used for a special project.
It is almost impossible to see but the body of the rooster and the flowers are dimensional. After cutting out the images and dry fitting them to the page, I shaped the paper with my fingers and gentle pressure to just the rights spots. Pop-dots help to hold the centre portions up. Wet glue is used all along the outside edge to hold it all down in place.
I linked the tutorial to Kathy's name above. The bag is attached with a binding pocket to her normal hidden hinge system. You can see that there are lots of pockets for photos and tags.

The page binding forms a belly band and I slipped in tags. The paper bag also allows for multiple items including more tags for photos and journaling.
