Bag, You're It!

Found a great tutorial on You-Tube, but now I can't find it again to give you the link :(
Oh well, there are many great tutorials out there and they're very easy to do.
Start with your basic brown lunch bag and go from there. 
One very helpful tip from the tutorial was to fold the lunch bag in half, the long way - making a skinny rectangle - then use your crop-a-dile to make a hole in the center of the flap end - this way you have a perfect template for your other bags!!!
I made this bag a couple of months ago as a quickie example for a club project, but have just finally taken some photos.  I used only 3 bags for this one, but you can use as many as you want.
I used miscellaneous papers and stickers that I've had around for eons... and some bling from ZVA Creative.

Here's the cover - I decided to go with a "recipe book" theme.

So - lots of blanks for recipes to be hand written.

I used grommets and rings for the binding and some
ready made recipe cards too.



Hope you enjoyed it!



  1. Love this Brenda. I will have to research this, it looks much more robust than lunch bags! TFS.

  2. Yes, it does LOL - but because it's got DP glued to it all over the place.... kind of neat and pockets already included.
