Make a Scrapbook From Paper Bags

Our family made these scrapbooks while on vacation.  They are made out of two or three paper bags.  Lay two or three paper bags neatly on top of each other. Carefully fold them in half, then punch five holes in the spine . 

You will need a heavy duty hole punch, or I used a heavy duty three hole punch.  Tie the holes in the spine with a cute ribbon.  Decorate the pages with scrapbook papers and pictures from your vacation.

Make a file page that fits into the open end of the lunch bag.  You can add a tab to pull out the page.  Each family member got to make their own scrapbook, and had a great time doing it.  From the youngest to grandma, we had everyone involved.  Each person came up with their own ideas and came up with unique ideas on how to use the pictures.  It was so much fun. 

You can use them for a birthday party, a church activity, a family reunion, girl's camp, a school classroom, or whatever else you can think of.
