This is my 2nd hosted swap. I want something fun and whimsical. So yesterday I found these darling colored paper bags. And thought they would be cute for a little mini journal. So here is the idea make a journal using 4-6 paper bags. And 2-4 pieces of fun paper. Single signature. Make the cover from something recycled. Leave room to write but make sure its decorated be fun and whimisical. Add surprising discoveries make tags for all pockets and tuck spots. Lots of time to play with this and do something really cute.

To help encourage everyone to play and have fun with this I will be doing a contest every on who gets rated a 5 will be entered. I will make something fun for you. But wait there is more. If the person I choose for the win has a lovely comment with the 5 they gave they too will win something fun.

For cost reasons alone USA only but open to everyone :) newbies too!

These bags are just the kind for paper bag lunch but I don't mind if they r a bit bigger or a bit smaller its a mini journal after all

so there are a lot of watchers for this one and so far no takers, so was wondering what is holding you all back. theses are very simple to do. as a matter of fact they whip out way faster than you think they would. i don't want to be the only one here so come on all you watchers please join :)
