Hi there everyone,
welcome to our blog and to this post. Today I am sharing with you, my Recipe book.
The book was inspired by my clients who wanted to make a recipe
book and by this beautiful colourful paper by Echo Park Paper,
and of course by the mason jar picture on one of the papers!
I painted the chipboard letters with Distress paint from Ranger
and then changed the colour with the Distress Stains.
(also from Ranger)
This shows you how I placed the double sided tape to stick down the
inside of the front cover. You can use your favourite glue of choice.
On the left hand side, which is the inside of the front cover,
you can write down the index of your Recipe Book.
I used a Mask from Prima and sprayed the blue card stock with
The rosette was cut with a Spell Binders Die. The front part cut from
white Bazzill card stock and the back side form the Echo Park paper.
The doily was sprayed with glimmer mist.
The Mason Jar stamp is from Hero Arts.
To do shadow stamping is quite easy.
Stamp the mason jar on the piece of Vanilla Card stock.
Stamp another image onto a piece of thin paper and cut
out the image with your scissors.
Place the image onto the first stamped image and stamp next to it,
but it must overlap.
So... if you look at my picture, you first stamp the image
on the right hand side and then the image on the left hand side.
The fork is a printed piece of cotton ribbon. Some papers were left 12" long,
and just folded in half and wrapped around the edge of the page and glued.
The green card stock was sprayed with glimmer mist and I used
another mask from Prima.The small flowers were punched with
a McGill punch.
The back of the yellow card stock was also sprayed with
Punch 5 tabs out of the remaining pieces of card stock and stamp numbers
onto them. Put double sided tape onto the tabs and stick to the
outside of the plastic A6 page protectors.
Start by placing number 5 and 1 in the correct positions.
Space the rest of the numbers and remove the backing of the tape to stick them down.
Put all 5 pages into your page protectors.
For the envelope: Cut off a piece of the top back side.
Fold the remaining front flap over to the front. Fold open again and
use a die cut to create the border. Stamp the two images and use
washi tape and bias binding at the bottom.
Bind the book together with three metal rings
and you are done!
