Today our theme is “bringing sexy back” so how am I bring it back? Well remember those old paper bag books we used to make years ago that were so fun and cute? Here is the BGC version of it using the retro popcorn bag in this month’s kit!
This book was so fun to make! I used a lot of the scraps from the wonderful papers in this kit and pulled a few bits and pieces from my vintage paper stash to mix in to create the pages.
It was constructed by simply folding all the pages in half between the popcorn bag and securing it with the polkadot ribbon include in the kit. The ribbon was a little too bright white for the vintage look I was going for in this mini so I distressed it up a bit with some brown ink.
Finally, I made a couple little slide out cards to slip in the pocket that was created in the opening of the bag with some card stock and a scrap this awesome 7 Gypsies Architextures paper as the tab. You will notice I just used staples to secure these pieces to make the tabs on the card stock so they can withstand being pulled in and out, plus I like the additional texture it gives. You can also cut a slit in the back cover to make another pocket for another slide out card as well. Then finished it off by embellishing it with that OH SO CUTE Prima flower and some hand cut leaves. Ink it all up (cause it wouldn’t be complete without ink) and I was done!
Hopefully you are inspired to bring this sexy lil number back because it is certainly one you will LOVE to create! Happy Scrapin’!
