Mother's Day Craft: Mom will absolutely love receiving this precious lunch bag scrapbook as a Mother's Day gift! This would be a really sweet gift to give to her at a Mother's Day Tea or Muffins with Mom!
Detailed step by step instructions and a photo tutorial make this project easy to follow and assemble. **You can see the scrapbooks my class made and get a project preview at my blog by following this link:
Pages for a Grandma and Aunt are also included if needed.
Inside are loads of printable pages for your scrapbook. You will need to purchase lunch bags, some scrapbook paper or bright paper / cardstock, ribbon and embellishments, so I've also included a letter (you write in the due date and dollar amount) for parents asking for students to help out a little around the house to earn the money toward the craft. I do this every year and the Moms think it is a great idea!
This craft is meant to be created in school but finished at home by working together with mom. In this file is a letter and poem for Mom so that she knows how to add photographs, write on the journaling cards and add keepsakes to the pockets.

I am not a scrapbooker, and this is really easy! It does involve some prep work- mainly copying and cutting apart pieces. As one buyer said, it is well worth it! I have done this craftivity with my students and received such great feedback from Moms that appreciated this sweet and unique gift!
I recommend doing this as a whole group project with step by step directions from the teacher or in small groups with the assistance of an adult.
If you are SHORT ON TIME but still LOVE this craft... consider making this brown bag book using Astrobright copy paper and stapling the book! :)
Thanks for taking a look! Please Pin this item if you like this craft and think that others may want to know where to find it!
