ruffled patterned paper

Stamped Recipe Book

My mom was looking to organize all of her favorite recipes into one big book.
So I went to work with Papertrey Ink and K & Company.

(I laminated the cover and section pages for durability, hence the glare)My mom had a 8 1/2 x 11 binder all ready to use, so I started with that size.

Using standard page protectors,
I sewed them in half both length wise
width wise
and then carefully used a pair of scissors to make the opening.
This created 4 pockets for her recipes to go into.

Each recipe card was embellished with a
darling accent sticker
stamp to match it's section.

I also created a bundle of blank recipe cards cause my folks can cook!
And they love "tinkering" in the kitchen.
