Paper Bag brag book.... Its a long one!

This is a long one!! I used four paper lunch bags to make this! Thanks to Rhonda for her inspiration!

I made this to give as a present this Christmas to one of my Friends!
It was so fun to make!!

The best part of this project???? 100% all Scraps!!
















X-mas tree from Cuttlebug Die Cut
Candies, mittens and ornaments from Simply Charmed
Large Christmas Tree from Create A Critter
Snowflakes from Accent Essentials cut from glitter paper
Snowflake CuttleBug Embossing folder
Each open side of the bag has a tag inside for journaling
Each page also has lots of glitter!
Merry Christmas from Jolly Holidays
Peachy Keen PK-504
Bling, buttons, string, ribbon all from stash

All paper was from my rather large scrap pile!!
I tied my trusty craft sting down the middle of the book to keep it all together!
