Paper or Plastic & Some Candy.....

Thursday is here! I hope you've had a good week. It's been a short week, but coming back to school after the Labor Day weekend, I feel behind and rushed to get back on track. I'm sharing something this morning that I had made a few years ago. This was my first attempt at a paper bag tag book. This little book was for my Honeybee on Valentine's Day 2006. I used the brown bags that you buy to carry lunch in. I folded each bag in half so the opening would be on the right side. I hole punched the spine area and tied ribbon to bind it. All of my papers were My Mind's Eye and Daisy d's. As you can tell, I really used up some ribbon on this project. My tags were all cut with Sizix. I had at least 4 tags in each opening of the bag (on the side where all the ribbon is). This was a fun little project! I've since wanted to make more, but for some reason I haven't. I hope you find time to make one. If you do, please share it with me!









I also want to share Laurel's blog candy this morning. She is celebrating too! Visit her awesome blog for daily inspiration. Leave a comment telling her about a big moment you've had. Her candy will be given away on September 23! Go, check it out!!!


Blessings,

  5. That is an adorable album!! I just recently ran across some lunch sacks (that we never us anymore) and I was just thinking I should use them to make an album:) Let's see if I ever get around to it now;)

  9. What a wonderful album. My husband would definitely think I did something very naughty or wanted something very big if I gave him something like this! LOL! Beth
