The book was made from those plain brown sandwich bags you can get with the handles. I used three bags. I cut off the handles and covered the bags front and back with card - using red white and blue. Then layered each side and added embellishments .
Once I had decorated the bags, I punched holes for the book rings and then covered the rings with red white and blue ribbons, adding a small metal charm to the top ring with 'Bon Voyage' on it. I finished each bag with a velcro dot to keep the bags closed.
I presented the book to Debbie on her arrival saying she could keep little momentos of her trip as she went along , which she did, even down to keeping a wooden fork from when she ate chips on the seafront!
The book was great fun to make and I intend making more like it in the future.
Next this month is my sons birthday and then in June I have a few so hopefully will be able to add pics when they are done. Its been difficult recently to get any crafting done as I have been busy preparing for the visit. I also had my sister and neice staying which meant my craft space was a no go area as its in the spare room!!
More later from Craftland . . .
