    How do I make a paperbag scrapbook?

    Hi, I'm new to this site and I am hoping that someone will be able to give me instructions on how to make a paperbag scrapbook. I have done some 12x12 pages, but fancy something different. I have loads of photos, paper, etc.....

    You'll need some paper bags, which we sell here on the website if you're looking for some!

    thank you for those links, this is something ive always fancied having a go at. Although ive seen some websites which sell the paperbags already made into a book. But that doesnt seem as fun

    Hi Zandra - these books are really addictive. I was sent 3 brown bags as part of a stash swap last year and started to do something with them just before Christmas. The theme is Paris/Vintage. It started off small and now I am so hooked, I keep adding in little extra pages and lots of fibres/ribbons/images/embellies - can't stop! It is almost finished now and I will try and put some piccies up when it is and ask everyone what they think. I've enjoyed it so much that I am in the throes of starting a new Oriental one with some bags I swapped for recently!

    Hope you have fun with your's.

    hi sashs (waving madly) lol

    i use normal paper bags too, layering them in a staggered effect and then folding and securing with all sorts of various items like sasha says above
