Separately fold three bags in half.
TIP: Use the bone folder to make a good crease on the bag fold.

Step 2

Lay the bags in opposite directions on top of each other.

Step 3

Fold the stacked bags in half to make the book.

Step 4

Staple at the edge of the fold to secure the book.

Step 5

Lay a piece of your ribbon over the stapled edge and using your bone folder make a crease for the book to fold back close to where the ribbon edge lays.

Step 6

Cut a piece of your ribbon to your desired length and adhere it to your paper bag book. Use the image as your guide. Tie a knot as shown in the image.

Step 7

Decorate the cover by cutting out a piece of the pattern paper to fit your book.

Step 8

Ink the edges with of the cut pattern paper Vintage Photo ink and adhere to the cover of the book.

Step 9

Cut a piece of the kraft cardstock and ink the edges with Vintage Photo ink and set aside.

Step 10

Ink three long pieces of the PrintMaker™ ribbon to make it look distressed and set aside to dry.
TIP: If needed, use a hair dryer on a low setting to dry the ribbon faster.

Step 11

In the PrintMaker™ app, design the family name and saying for each line on the cover.

Step 12

Using the ribbon & washi guide, weave one of the inked ribbons through the correct size guide and slide the PrintMaker™ along the length of the ribbon to print the first ribbon. Downward pressure isn’t necessary. Repeat with the other two inked ribbons and sayings.

Step 13

Adhere the printed ribbons onto the inked kraft cardstock.

Step 14

Adhere the inked kraft cardstock to the cover of your book.

Step 15

Ink the edges of the book with Vintage Photo ink and continue throughout the book. Let dry.

Step 16

Decorate the remaining pages with the stickers and pattern paper to your desired size and look.

Step 17

Adhere recipes to the decorated inside pages.

Step 18

Cut a piece of the kraft cardstock to fit inside the book pockets and staple a piece of the ribbon to make a tab.
