25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts-Day 24 recipe book

Today's project is a simple little recipe book that started with some recipe cards from the dollar bins at Michael's. The hardest part of this project was deciding what yummy recipes to put in it!

For this project, I used the following supplies;

recipe cards
hole punch
binder rings
scrapbook paper
craft knife
stickers, punches, or other stuff to decorate the cover

Start by covering your chipboard with the scrapbook paper. Use your adhesive and then trim using your craft knife.

Punch holes in your cover and recipe cards.

Then decorate the front of your cover.

When you are finished, use your binder rings to attach the books. Add ribbon to your rings and you are all done!

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a Michael's gift card! Happy holiday crafting!

Gosh, you are so crafty! This would be a great teacher gift..have every child in the class provide a family favorite recipe. Since the cards are inexpensive you could send a card home with each student. Compile them, decorate cover, and you have a gift.

Another great job. I am loving green/red this season which is not normal for me, usually I am the blue/silver/white girl. Great job!
