Brown Bag Book

All the kids are out of school or finishing up this week. Since you won’t be packing a lunch for them for the next couple of months, use their brown paper bags to create a mini book with their school pictures.



1. Use a border punch on the edge of the brown paper lunch sacks.

2. Measure a 7 ½” x 5 ¼”piece of cardstock. Neatly stack paper sacks and evenly fold 7½”x 5 ¼” cardstock piece over the bottom of sacks. Use the folds on the paper sacks as a guide when adhering cardstock piece.

3. Adhere the bottom of each paper sack to the next paper sack.

4. Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a 3/16″ hole through the cardstock piece and paper sacks.

5. Set an eyelet/washer combo through cardstock piece and paper sacks.

6. Create tags and tag envelopes using a tag die-cut or pattern found on the internet. Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a 3/16″ hole and set eyelet/washer combo on tag.

7. Embellish paper bag with photos, eyelets, tags, stickers, and ribbon as desired.
