With this type of scrapping, no need to run to the craft store and buy any supplies. Almost everyone has brown paper lunch bags in the house. One of the greatest advantages to these little memory savers is you get a few envelope type openings on the pages into which you can insert menus, tickets, notes and other little souvenirs of your holiday.
Gather the pictures you want to have in your book. Count them. The sum of the photos is how many pages you want in your book. Each paper bag - folded in half - will give you 4 pages. Therefore, if you want to include 12 photos in your book, you'll need 12 divided by 4 = 3. If you want a blank front and back cover for your book, you'll have to add one more bag. Of course you can embellish these covers any way you like.
Here's how it's done.
|Supplies: brown paper lunch bags, glue, scrap embellishments, scrapbook paper, ribbon|
|Fold each bag in half separately|
|With a hole punch - punch a hole on center fold from top and bottom|
|Lay bags in opposite directions so you won't have too much bulk - line up the holes|
|I bound the book by threading raggedy ribbon through the 4 pages of punched holes|
|Here you can see I've used scrap embellishments and the pocket opening for notes|
|Book view of open ended pages where mementoes can be tucked|
