Shellye is sharing the most adorable brag book with us today. And do you recognize the image on the cover - its from one of our Freebie Fridays!  Just click on the picture below in the supply list to be taken to where you can download it.

Step-by-Step Instructions

1.  Using five of the flat 5x7.5 Kraft Bags, stack them together by alternating  open end, closed end, open end.

2. Fold the bags in the center.  

3.  Machine stitch (or hand-stitch using a book-binding technique) down the center of the stack of paper bags. 

4.  Add doily pieces, tags or tabs to the opening of the bags.  

5. Cut desired patterned paper down to the size of each page and embellish as desired.  

This would make the perfect brag book for Grandma and makes such a nice addition to a coffee or end table!
