BIRDS & NATURE PAPER BAG BOOK

I have created a paper bag book for a special swap partner.  
Using the front and back cover of an antique book I set out for some creating fun.

Each page is actually a brown paper bag, each bag is open on the ends and has fun items tucked inside.
Some of the pages have pockets made with vintage doilies.
The book is themed; nature and birds.
Another pocket here.  Lots of tags were created and tucked into pockets here and there.
Some of the pages are covered with sheet music.  Buttons and paper flowers here and there.
A photograph of a family of Canadian geese from our own EmmaBeanDesigns.

Tucked in a pocket, some envelopes made from vintage wallpaper.
An organza bag for keeping goodies.

A pocket of flower seeds and some punched butterflies.
Thanks for stopping by.
Michele
