Mini Paper bag book

I am all about mini scrapbooks. I think I have mentioned this before. They are easy, require just a few supplies, you can make one in a day, you only need a few pictures etc etc. Lately I am really into paper bag books. The other day my sister in law came over and we started on some Christmas paper bag books. That got my juices flowing and I have about 100 ideas for ones that I want to make. Anyway one of the ones I started the other night was this one.:
I think I used 4 paper bags for this.
I decorated the pages and it has 4 pockets as well, so ya, duh I did use 4 paper bags.
Here is the side view. The problem I was having was deciding what kind of a book to turn this into. After a few days of thinking and sleepless nights with paper bag book ideas going through my head I came up with this:
I typed up some of my favorite recipes and used some cute pictures from an old Mary Englebrite calender and a few embellishments and here is the final product:
Here is a picture with the recipe from inside the pocket peeking out.

Here is the side view of the final product. I am so happy with how it turned out. This is going to be a gift for a friend for Christmas. Now I am itching to start on another one.
Pin It!
