Paper bag book

I got a call this morning asking if I'd want to make a custom paper bag book that would be at a memorial service. My friend Sandy explained that her uncle had been a real Montana cowboy if there ever was one. A simple man who spent his whole life being a cowboy...working cattle and horses...riding the rodeo...
I was touched that her mom had requested one of these books for her brother's service. I got to work immediately since time is of the essence. She told me I could share the photos of the book.



There are lots of tags as well as some vintage postcards from Montana tucked into the pockets. Plenty of space for friends and family to write little notes, tell stories or simply sign their name.

The book is beautiful now and will be even more beautiful as it gets filled with loving thoughts later. How wonderful that you could be there for their family.
