Lunch Paper Bag Book

Another craft from this week, a lunch paper bag book.

You will need three lunch paper bags. (They come in lots of colors besides brown. However, they might have a wax coating on them which may make it difficult to use glue stick for adhering decorative papers or embellishments.)

A hole punch, glue stick and a length of ribbon, twine or yarn

Stack the lunch bags alternating the bottoms and the open top flap.

Fold in half.

With the hole punch, punch three holes. One in the middle, one at the top and one at the bottom. I didn't bother to measure, but go ahead if you need to be exact. Lace the ribbon through the holes and tie with a knot or bow.

The paper bags I used folded to 5 inches square.

You can write on the bags as is or you can cover the pages with decorative paper. The open tops of the bag make handy pockets to hold ephemera.

The book can be used as a journal, a photo album, or storing ephemera.
