This is another mini paperbag book. This one is for my nephew to keep his memories of Nana and Papa's house. Fishing, ice fishing, walks kayaking, boating and playing. This one has fabric, string, acrylic paint and copper brads. A little more of a worn masculine look compared to the girls (previous post).

Scrapbooking mini style is really fun!!

I saw an example of a tag like
this in a magazine using the daisy
K & Co. papers. I loved it and had to make a couple for the girls minibooks.

Paper Bag MiniBooks

These are the little boxes I found, just the perfect size to hold my paperbag minibooks.
One for each of my daughters to hold those special memories from their nana and papa's log cabin on the lake.
The front of this one has some beading for the word "fun". I sewed the bags together for a strong binding then punched holes for the ribbons.
I love the paper bags because you can sneak in so many pictures and journaling for some great pull-out surprises.
Some painting here with letter templates. I started these books 2 Christmases ago and really need to finish preparing the inside for pictures and send them off to nana and papa's house.

This is three bags decorated and held together with loops on one side. The middle bag handle is cut off and the bottom of all three bags are cut off and glued on the bottom.
