Christmas Brag Book

12/14/2015 | Lynn Lilly
This year make a Christmas Brag Book for all your fun Holiday Memories!

 For my brag book, I used clear flexible pouches from Deflecto Craft Solutions and paper
from Canvas Corp Brands Farmhouse Christmas Collection for a Quick and Easy project.
A Great Gift Idea for the Grandparents.

A fun way to share Holiday Silliness and the Sweet Little Moments shared between generations.

The Christmas Brag Book was created for Craft Ideas Magazine’s Holiday Issue

and has my Christmas photo’s from last year.

Craft Ideas is an excellent magazine for creative inspiration.
