re-cycle book



Made a scrap book or glue book with about 4 grocery 'brown bags'
Lots of pages ready to use.
I made the cover keeping it simple.
Binding is sewn and then wrapped with scrim, very old lace, a flower I created, and some old ball trim.
To give the pages a worn look and to soften them I soaked them in water and crushed them a little before putting on my Lanai to dry.

You can make a bag look amazingly beautiful, Lilla.

I love the simpleness of a paper bag.

Hope you are well - xo Rhonda
