Drew’s Paper Bag LOTV Nativity Book

I had sooo much fun making this book for Drew’s Christmas card/present. It took me a good couple of weeks to make! It was truly a labor of love! I found the directions here for making the paper bag book. This is going to be a long post with lots of pics so grab some coffee. For me, it’s a mug of raspberry chai!

The Cover

Away in a Manger

The main thing for this pic is I made the background paper using the faux leather technique found here. This was so much fun to do! Really makes an awesome paper.

Left side of all the pages will be a pocket page with a tag in them that has a Bible verse on it.

Also in the pocket of the bag that each image was glued to had a large tag that had various things typed on them. The Nativity, Psalm 23, and other favorites. Also a tag for memories of 2012 Christmas.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was very quiet. After almost 11 months of unemployment we did not make a big deal with Christmas. Here’s hoping 2013 will be better.

I want to take this time to thank you for coming and spending time with me over 2012 and for all the wonderful comments you have left. They mean the world to me.

Next will be Randy’s card/present. I used 7 Magnolia images on his project.
