Papertrey August Blog Hop challenge

Our challenge was to create something with paperbags. I made this little booklet for my entry. I cut bits and pieces of several random yet coordinating colored patterned paper and assembled them into little cards - each car holding 3 different patterned papers. I cut many Mat Stack #3 die note cards to insert into the pockets. Thought this would be a great place for a note or journaling if used as a photo album. I added ribbon to the outside to tie the booklet closed. And on the front of the booklet I put 2 stamped and die cut BB flowers with leaves. I think it turned out super cute and will make a fun gift for someone. I even have a coordinating birthday card. What do you think?



Supplies: all Papertrey Ink except for mini paper bags

Patterned Paper: Library Ledger, Green Tea Leaves, Polka Dot Parade, Turning a New Leaf, Friends 'til the End and Dotty Biscotti

INK: Aqua Mist, Vintage Tea Dye Duo

Accessories: Vintage buttons, Aqua Mist grosgrain, chocolate baker's twine, Beautiful Blooms dies, Mat Stack #3 die and scor tape
