Happy Quotes Mini Paperbag Book # 2

Yesterday, I posted here the first of two mini books that are filled with quotes and lyrics of an uplifting nature. This is the second presentation, using many of the same papers for tags and pages.  Paperbag books are so much fun to make because there is a sense of freedom in putting things together.  Anything goes!

To find quotes, I did a few internet searches and came up with hundreds of potential candidates for the book.  It would be easy to make a dozen or so mini-books with happy feeling quotes and lyrics!

I did not check for accuracy whether the quotes were accurately attributed to the authors which are listed on my pages.  Just so you know.  In case you use one for a public speech or something that might need to be fact checked. :-)

One of the six tags in the book
The bags can accommodate more than just one tag.  I may add some additional tags because I still have so many wonderful quotes that I'd like to include. Yes, even with TWO books!

The tags were cut at 6" by about 3".  Some were a little narrower because I wanted to have a bit of variety in the sizes.  The tags were topped with ribbons or diecuts used as pull-tabs.
