Recycled Paper Bag Doodle or Sticker Book

Recycled Paper Bag Doodle or Sticker Book - finished doodle pad
Recycled paper bags or great to use for crafting. Wine, liquor, or glass beverages are sometimes packaged in a brown paper bag, or if you live in a state where plastic bags are banned (like I do) then you will only get paper bags unless you bring reusable bags for your groceries. After awhile the paper bags do begin to wear and the handles break. You can then recycle them and turn the brown paper bags into a kid's doodle or sticker book.
