Paperbag Cookbooks

Oh, how I wish I had a picture from this activity! We helped the girls made paper bag scrapbooks and it was a blast! But, instead of making them into scrapbooks we made them into cookbooks. We gathered a few fun recipes like Chocolate Chip Cookies, Wendy's Frosty's and more then printed them out small enough to fit on one half of the bag. We gathered up our scrapbook stuff and let the girls decorate the front cover. HERE are some directions on how to make the books. We also made cookies together and the girls each got to take a few home.

The great thing about these books is they can be as fancy or plain as you want, as well as they can work for anything! Not just cookbooks! Try making them using the Young Women's values or with girls camp photos. Anything goes!


  1. I just recently found your blog and love it! This is such a cute idea. I have a quick question though. I made one myself to see how they were to make. What did you do with the right side of the pages? Did you tape each separate bag so it wasn't open. I used 2 bags and did not get 8 pages. (unless you count the very front title page and the very back.) Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  2. This is a great idea for LDS Primary! Thank you for posting so many pictures, too!
