Paper Bag Scrap Books For Kids

Here is such a cute idea for kids and scrap booking

Paper Bag Scrap Books For Kids...

You will need
Paper Bags-the kind for lunches
Scissors
Glue
Stapler
Scrap Paper
Stickers
Embellishments

1.Take 3 or 4 paper bags and fold them together in half
2.Staple the bags together at folded end
3.Take scrap paper and glue on front and back on folded bags this way the staples are covered
4.For each page you now have you can glue different colored paper on each side of bags
5.Add your embellishments...such as ribbon,stickers,buttons,torn pieces of paper
6.Add a name to the front cover of your scrap book
7.Give as a gift for mom,dad,brother,sister,grandma,grandpa,aunt or uncle,or to your favorite teacher,your favorite valentine's...
8.Add your own favorite pictures...as a gift to grandparents add pictures of their grandchildren...for dad add pictures of children,etc...

Here is one I did up today for "Travel"

That is a really good idea. I make scrapbooks for my stepdaughter and she loves them. This would be a good way to get her more involved.

Very cute idea. I am always looking for inexpensive ideas for craft projects for kids at the Library. If I am looking at this right--Do the bags have a pocket that you could use too?

Joy if you leave the bags opened after they are stapled together...they can use them to put pictures or anything inside the opening...just like a pocket...Enjoy

Thanks Buddy. We have a Friday off of school due to Parent-Teacher Conferences next month. I think I will plan a craft day at the Library and use this idea.
