Paperbag Book

I am doing a craft fair and a friend from the stamp shack gave the directions on how to do these books. Thanks Cindi!!! Ok here ya go:

Take 3 brown paper lunch bags and stack them on top of each other, alternating the ends. Like the bottom to the right once and the next time to the left.

Then you fold them in half

Next you bind them, it's easier to bind them first, otherwise they are so thick it's hard to work with.

Next you just add paper and embellish as you like. I added little tags inside where the little flaps are. I taped them down on the sides first then put the pp over it. Look at the third picture. Very easy to do.
These are used as sign in books. Pass it around to your guests and have them put their thoughts down. You can use the little pockets to put pictures in and store items from your special day!!
