      This is the basic instruction to make a Paper Bag Matchbook. How you embellish is completely up to you.

      I used items from the July Vintage Fae Kit

      Supplies:

      Paper Bags (3) 5 1/8 X 10 5/8 inches
      Card Stock
      Stapler
      Adhesive
      Lots of Embellies

      Take your card stock( this will be the cover) and cut 12 x 5 1/2
      optional: ink and distress

      Score the cover at 1, 6.5 and 7

      Fold at the score lines

      I used regular size white paper bags. I only used three, but you can use up to six.

      Measuring from the top of the paper bags, cut off the bottom sections at the 5 1/2 mark

      At this time you want to embellish your bags. Ink, mist, distress. Even add thin embellishments

      Now you can stack your bags and place them in the small fold of the cover. Staple

      For the insert for the paper bags pockets, cut three peices of card stock at 4.5 x 5
      Embellish these insert to your liking. You can add photos, joualing ephemera,….whatever.

      Depending how chunky you want your mini is up to you.

      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
