The purpose of using the bags is to get the little envelope that can be used to insert pages for photos, ticket stubs, etc.  Otherwise, why not just use plain brown wrapping paper.  You get four "pages" from one bag so it makes it quick to get together.

I used cardboard for the front and back covers:

 
I used about 8 bags in this one, folded in half, scrapbook paper inserted in the "pockets".  I suggest making some sort of ribbon or other closure as they do not want to stay shut:


Cherryrose--if you still want bags, PM me.  I would hate for anyone to be deprived of this fun and creative craft!

I love the paper bag books.  I would so like to attempt to make some of these, but alas I don't have any brown paper bags (as I'm also in the UK) and I don't know how to book bind.  So alas, I think I don't have any hope in trying to make these!  I will just have to admire them from afar

i could check out the post office and see if the shipping isn't bad.  like our flat rate envelope - can put a brick in it as long as it fits!  i think they have the same for international.  so i may be up for sending some your way as well!  the bags are cheap, but well see about shipping. i might just throw in some happy do dads that i'm not gonna use, but are pretty anyway.  pm me with the addy.
