I have used some lunch paper bags from my stash. These were some that I received from the US, and they looked a little like this...
I have used 6 paper bags measuring 5" x 9.75" x 3.15" or 12.7cm x 24.8cm x 8cm. To prep my bags I first opened them up and folded on of the side gussets outward so that I could cut a slit into them....so they looked like this....
I then adhered down all the flaps.
I folded the top or gusset part of the bag in half and adhered it down. This will be where I bind the mini. It will be flip from the top. I also then trimmed the edges of my bag so that they now 6 inches.
Once I finished this step I then inked up all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain and then set them aside whilst I cut all my papers to size.
I have no pics to accompany these steps, but I mat all my bags from
Love Pieand folded up the flap to create a pocket to house a recipe card.
and this is the reverse of the cards. I have mat with some freebies I found on Pinterest.
These are some that will be going inside the paper bags.
and the online shop
