An Old Halloween Project

Back in 2005 my husband and I had a Halloween Party, and I made a book for keeping the recipes I wanted to use, party planning papers and such.  This is that book.  I found it today, whilst I was getting ready for our Halloween this year, and I thought you all would like to see it.
 This is a paper bag book, made out of full sized grocery bags, folded in half and the edges trimmed.  It is big enough to hold 8 1/2" x 11" papers!
 This was pre-Cricut days...so I created the recipe tombstones on my computer.  I hand cut all of the letters with stencils to make the titles for my pages.  I even created the tags, which I will show in a later picture.
 I don't know the line of papers I used, that was 6 years ago, sorry!
 I made up the "spooky" recipes by myself.
 The binding was a simple ribbon binding.
 Here are the tags I made.
This is just an example of what I have in my pockets.  It held magazine clippings, printouts from the net, and I even have pumpkin carving templates in here!  It was cool to find it buried under my cookbooks.  It was a mini time capsule.

Stay Scary, My Friends!
