I was provided product from Fancy Pants Designs and Clearsnap for this blog hop. All opinions are 100% my own.

I'm so excited to be on the Clearsnap and Fancy Pants Blog Hop this week! Today is the final day of the hop and Denise Hahn and I are the featured designers for Clearsnap. I have long loved the quality and designs of Fancy Pants Designs products and that made creating this book so enjoyable. Today I am sharing how to decorate a paper bag book with Fancy Pants Designs papers and embellishments and Clearsnap's ink and accessories:

Denim and PaperBag book by Jennifer Priest for Clearsnap

Isn't that burlap bow the cutest?!?!

This book features a base that I used to make and sell in my etsy shop. Essentially I cut denim to the same size as the paper bags, stacked the pages in order as desired, and sewed down the middle to create the book.

I used a mix of Clearsnap and Fancy Pants Designs Products to decorate the 24 pages of the mini book:

  • ColorBox Spritzers
  • ColorBox Art Screens
  • Fancy Pants Designs Burlap & Bouquets and Me-ology Papers and Stickers
  • ColorBox Chalk Queues
  • ColorBox Pigment Ink Queues
  • ColorBox Stylus and Tips
  • Design Adhesives
  • Designer Foils

Check out this video showing how I decorated the pages and used Fancy Pants Designs and Clearsnap products in tandem for a unified look:
