Crafting with Cutters Challenge #130 BOOKS

Hello everyone! Today is another fun challenge over at CRAFTING WITH CUTTERS and it is all about books or libraries as this is National Library Week.  If any of you have followed me for any length of time, you know that I love mini books so I thought a mini book would be a perfect way to keep with this week's theme! I chose to make a simple paper bag mini book:





Here are a few pics of the assembly process:
Adhere folded small ends together.


Attach all sections together.

Cover pages with patterned scrapbook paper.

Punch holes through all layers.

Thread ribbon through the holes and.....

Tie in front.

I used TBBM to cut some various shaped tags to use in the pockets of the album.

A couple of views from the side.




Paper bag mini books are so much fun to make and it is so easy to be creative with them! 

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to head over to CRAFTING WITH CUTTERS to see more projects that fit this week's theme and to play along with us!
