Paper Bag Halloween Books

I have so many fun Halloween pix of our family and wanted to display them somehow. I made the Photo Cauldron which I love and also made paper bag photo books for Halloween every year since we have had grandchildren. I want to go back and get the older pictures of our family and do them as well - probably not this year! Good project for the coming year.


Here is my mess!

To make these you get whatever size paper bag you want, fold it in half, punchholes in the folded edge and add ribbon to connect the books. Decorate each picture and add to the each page of the book.

This was a candy holder that I made years ago - the little box is a perfect storage place for these little books. Thanks for stoping by!

Halloween Picture Cauldron
I saw this adorable idea For Family Photo Cubes originally on Style Burb. I wanted to do something like this with all the fun Halloween photo's we have so we can see them more. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been trying really hard this past year to use what I have in the house and not spend any money on new supplies for projects (except maybe glue!) - it has created some major creativity thought process that makes my head hurt sometimes!


Here are the supplies needed:

Card stock that had been printed on one side already - I used the back

I printed out the pattern then cut each one out to save on ink.

One glue stick did it all


Pictures I used (Some of the pictures were cut into several pieces and used for a couple sides of the blocks).
I wanted something in the bottom of it and was thinking about using shred - then I remembered I had these half marbles I have used in other things - they are just perfect!

I copied and pasted her template she used into my print artist program and adjusted the size to what I needed.

(click here for the template)

Then I folded them to see where to put the pictures.

Then I cut a pattern from the template and cut the pictures to fit.

Here is one that is put together - I tried to face the pictures all different directions. Then glued them into cubesHere it is all finished - love it! When I finished a couple of our children walked in and saw it and first thing and had to see all the blocks. You can add more blocks and make it in a bigger bowl or vase. I am thinking about making these for Christmas gifts for grandparents. A classy gift and one I think they would love!

Here it is from another angle. Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you have a wonderful and fun Halloween season from our house to your's!
