This is the first time I have made a paper bag book. It was the second part of the hand-stamped gift I made for the Chicago SCSer gathering back in March. I used 3 bags. I was pretty happy with it, especially considering it was my first try doing these! I really like them, I am going to make a bunch for gifts this year for friends and family. This shows the pull out insert in the bag part of the second page.

These paper bag books fascinate me! I'd like to actually see one to see if I would want to do this. My imagination isn't so great to *picture* one before I see it done! I love the colors you used for yours and the corner treatments on this pull out page are fabulous!
