C181 - Brown Bag It Baby

$ 85  


Create magic with simple brown bags in this playful workshop. Through the alchemy of paint, text and imagery, the bags are transformed with metallic hues, enhanced with re-purposed encyclopedia pages and images into decorative pages that unfold to reveal pockets. The pockets can hold your precious secrets or cards that you can decorate as desired. Embellished covers are added to give substance. The no sew accordion spine opens up to reveal a hidden area, perfect for words, sayings or images. A handout is included.
