Paper Bag Recipe Book

Hello my crafty friends,
(actually, I had accidently typed "fiends" instead of friends ;) LOL! Hmmm, I'm sure there are some crafty fiends out there!)
Today, I'm sharing a cuuuute Paper Bag Recipe Book made from the PineCone Press papers kit. Paper bag albums were one of the very first type of books I learned to make & absolutely love them because they're easy peasy! Check this one out:
Here's the whole book with the pages that tuck in the bag:
 Here's the cover:
 First 2 pages:

 Next two pages: sorry for this pic :(
 Last 2 pages:

 Here's the first page pulled out from the bag:

Here, you can see how the paper bag is used:
 See how nicely they tuck in
Making this book gave me the idea for my Christmas cookie exchange group. I swap cookies (& the recipe) with some friends, but I thought that this year we would make this book ready to add this year's cookie recipes! Finally!!! I'm actually ahead for once! And since the book is made with paper bags, it's inexpensive to boot :)
I'll share the one I made for my cookie group & directions on how to make one for yourself (in case you haven't made one of these before.) next time.

Thanks so much for peeking today!
Gotta Go!
