Christmas Paper Bag Book

Here's is the nearly finished Christmas Paper Bag ART Book I have been working on for one of my Yahoo groups. I still have the goodies for the insides to do....but wanted them to be a surprise for the recipient. :::smiles::: The only criteria we had was to make it Christmas themed. I flipped through my stash of Christmas scrapbook papers looking for a set with a theme. When I found the "Jingle Bells" background words paper set, I knew I had found my theme. It is not traditional colors, which I enjoy. All of the circle, star, snowflake embellishments were hand made by me. I printed out the lyrics to Jingle Bells which run throughout the book. I put it together using my bind-it-all and tied the spine with ribbons. Anywho....here it is!! :) Click on the pics to see the details!!






Back cover. The "JOY" is a pocket that will be filled with a goodie.

This is a coordinating mini composition book that goes in one of the bags. It measures 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
