Sugar and Spice

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a mini recipe album I created for Canvas Corp's Save a Recipe Challenge. I started with two of the Black and Ivory File Folders as the cover of for my recipe album.
First I cut the tab off of the striped folder. 



Score at the fold 1/4" three times on the back side of the striped folder.  


The diamond pattern folder cut one inch off the tab end and scored 1/4" four times on the front side of the folder. Measure and mark 1 1/2" three times down spine of folder and punch for a total of six tiny holes.


Run three Small Binding Rings through the holes.


Adhere the diamond folder on top of the striped folder.


Now for the fun part I decorated the cover with a doily, twine, flowers, a mini Recipe Card and black tulle along with a flour sack, baking powder and barely pears that I fussy cut from the General Store on Ivory Cardstock


I also used the following Tattered Angels Glimmer and Chalkboard Mists ( Moss, Mint Julip, Ruby Red Slipper, Monolith) to add a little to color to the images I fussy cut. The flour bag I also tied red burlap thread to the ends of the bag for a fun look. I added the fork and spoon from the Cutlery Set to finish off the cover.


I cut a sheet of the Bake and Can Recipe Cards a part, punched holes and added to the album and the inside cover is decorated with the Farmhouse Kitchen Stripe Cardstock.


Also I forgot to mention on the front cover I cut and adhered a 1 1/2" x5" piece of Black and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock on top of the doily before I added all the other embellishments. I punched a hole on the overlapping tab and also punched a hole in the crease and threaded twine though both holes and tied off to create a closure.
If you have any questions about this recipe album please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!
