I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home paper stack. In addition to lots of space for recipes, this album has lots of pockets and pull-outs to hold photos of family gatherings and mementos.
It has a wrap-around cover. The spines are wrapped in fabric and I used a few sheets of scrapbook paper left over from other projects to wrap the front and back covers.
The paper bags are expandable. If you've already purchased my Double Paper Bag album tutorial, you can refer back to the online list of accompanying videos where I just uploaded an additional video that shows how I attached the flaps so that the bags could expand to hold lots of recipes. (If you purchased the tutorial from my Etsy shop and don't have the web address to the list of videos, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the web address.)
If you want to make a similar album but haven't yet purchased the tutorial, it is available at www.scrappinrabbit.com/2015/06/tutorial-double-paper-bag-scrapbook.html. You can also download my free Kitchen Helps and Favorite Recipes printable pages from the same link.
Below is a video that shows my recipe album in detail.
