This week at Gingersnap Creations it's the Random Redhead Challenge sponsored by Altered Pages where the theme is bags and tags, and this is the paperbag book I made using images from an Altered Pages collage sheet. I also played with a sheet of Kraft Resist paper and Adirondack Colorwash in lettuce and stream - really fun paper! I added some highlights with a white colored pencil to give it even more definition. The book is simply 2 paper bags folded in half and bound with a Bind-It-All. So simple to make and adaptable to any size you need by just adding more bags. Here's the book's cover:
On the inside, I adhered the bottom of the bag on the sides to create a pocket where I could tuck collage sheet images and then on the other side, which is the open end, I cut a window through the top layer allowing me to have a pocket for a tag.
Here are both tags pulled out of their pockets for a better view.
And to go along with the money theme of my book, I used ribbon yarn on my tag ties and book spine that has the color name of "Copper Penny" - one of my favorites :-)
Join us by making a bag and/or tag project and add your link to the post HERE. You'll even have a chance to win a cool kit from Altered Pages in a random drawing of all the entries. The challenge runs until July 19th and for more inspiring pieces be sure to check out what the other gingers have made!
