Lunch Bag Scrapbook

My cousin was feeling a little under the weather recently, so I decided to make her a little scrapbook out of brown paper lunch bags. Actually, I used purple paper lunch bags because I already had them around the house and I thought they would look cuter. I love how it turned out and she loved it too!


All you need are some pictures, lunch bags, scrapbook paper, and embellishments.

I covered the bags with the scrapbook paper and stapled it like a book.

I used more paper to cover where I had stapled. You could also use ribbon. I just glued mine on.

I added some embellishments and it turned out adorable!

I slipped a couple of pictures into the "sleeves" that used to be the paper bag openings.



I also slipped a picture of Edward Cullen with it, because he makes everything better.

  7. I've done one of these before, but now I'm inspired to make another! I love how you varied your "tabs" for the pull-out pages, and how you did the "binding." So great!
