There are several ways you can bind a paper bag book, but I like to sew them. The photo above shows the stitched center, and you can see how the book lays nice and flat when open! Other methods are cute, but can limit the usable space left inside as well as make the book less functional.
Last night I hosted my monthly Ladies Night workshop. We did these little paper bag books in honor of National Scrapbooking month. Everyone started with the same supplies, but I encouraged them to plan the assembly their way and play with the different papers before adhering anything down. Each book was a unique masterpiece!
