I want some! Well....lots actually! I'm in the UK, if anyone can tell me where to get some from, for a decent price. I've looked online, the total would come to about 20. Which if I'm forced to, I will pay - but I just thought I'd check you lovely crafty people!

Alternately, if there are any yanks out there who would want to do a personal swap with me. I'd be more than willing to swap some UK items you fancy, for a stash of brown paper bags!

I just want some bags!!

Paper bag journals are my newest addiction!!  They are loads of fun!  I would also be happy to be a US source for you--I get 75 bags for $1.  I prefer the brown ones but there are also white ones.  Just PM me if you ever need more sweetie!!

How generous of shorty to assist you for now!!  I am sure all bases carry them!! We like our lunch bags for all sorts of things, ha ha!

Have fun!!

Aw thanks so much always! That's so kind of you. You never know, I may take you up on it! I welcome private swaps anyway, so if you ever wanted to do it that way i'd be willing Smiley

How does a paper bag journal work, I am just getting into journal making. Do you just cut apart the bags and use the paper?

I love paperbag scrapbooks and would love to make one myself, but where I live I don't know where to get them! Maybe someone here could send me some, I'll pay for shipping costs of course. I live in the netherlands.

Jennique this is a link showing one way to make one. I personally bind them, but you can use brads, ribbons, keychains, whatever takes your fancy!

Thanks for the link. I tried my own way by cutting off the bottom of the bag and slicing it open then refolding it. I may be tempted to try this way too.
