Paper Bag Scrapbook

Well, I have to admit I never thought I would make one of these, but now I think I'm hooked! I haven't even put photos in it yet and I love it. I am a member of the SCS DDSS club (secret stampin sisters) and my "little" stated in her questionare that she would like to see a paperbag scrapbook. So I did some research and got my directions from After I made hers, I had to make one for myself! So here is my personal favorite creation. Check out the above link for detailed instructions.

This is the front of the book. The colors for this book was inspired by the striped ribbon I used in the binding and on the front. It has Yoyo Yellow, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper white and an old SU color, Mint Melody. When I found this ribbon, I thought the colors were unusual, but pretty. I used white lunch bags I found at a local craft wholesale store, but they are also available at GFS. I punched 3 sets of 2 holes and tied various ribbons thru them to make the binding of the book.

This is page 1 & 2. I used SU daisy flower punch to create the edge of page 2 and attached daisies to the edge of the tag that are in the pocket.

These are pages 3 & 4. Under the flap of the bag I added a tag that is removable for journaling.

These are the last 2 pages in the book, and it also has a daisy pull out tag from a pocket made from the opening of the bag.

You did a great job on your first paper bag scrapbook. I have seen a lot of them but have not made one yet. I guess I am afraid that after all that work...will it last? Or do they sell achival safe paper bags?
