Glassine Bag Nursery Rhyme Book

Today Karen is sharing a super sweet Nursery Rhyme Book she created using soft, sweet glassine bags.  If you don't own any glassine bags, you can definitely create something like this using any of the sweet Decorative Bags available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  And of course, these little books can be tied shut by adding ribbons as a closure.  This is the front of Karen's little Nursery Rhyme Book.  You can see that she tied some May Arts Natural Burlap String and the closure includes Ivory Grosgrain and luscious Pink Aster Seam Binding.  There's also some Raspberry Baker's Twine tied around and around and around the bottom right.

The bags are covered in patterned papers, a doily, and lots of embellishments.  They're very easy to accessorize and adorn with all the FABULOUS ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Here is the next page as you untie and open the Nursery Rhyme Book.

You can see that Karen tied MANY lengths of Cotton Candy Baker's Twine around the right hand page because it's just SO sweet.  The photo below shows a close up photo of the Little Bo Peep page so that you can see the Cotton Candy Baker's Twine/Bow a little bit better.

By using glassine bags, or Decorative Bags in general, it creates automatic pockets for tags, journaling cards, etc.  The following page shows you what you see when you flip the next page, and of course......there are more Really Reasonable Ribbons!

This is my favorite because I just LOVE the Mary Had a Little Lamb page and the sweet little Mulberry Flowers tucked in.  And favorite page of all, which is the Mary Had a Little Lamb page.

You can see the trims that tie the Nursery Rhyme Book shut, which again are the Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon and the Pink Aster Seam Binding.  And finally, the last photo is a picture of the Back Cover (flipped on its side), which has MANY lengths of Cotton Candy Baker's Twine around the back several times for texture and embellishment.

I hope you've enjoyed this little Nursery Rhyme Book, and that you will grab some great new ribbons, trims and laces available at Really Reasonable Ribbon to adorn  your project.  There's no end to the possibilities of projects you can create using Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies.  We really hope you will also stop by to play along in our Purple & Green Challenge which starts tomorrow.
