ClearSnap: BBQ Recipe Booklet

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick and easy mini recipe booklet I created using the Needle Book DiecutColorBox: Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and ColorBox: Art Screens Stars.
I started by applying one 6"x6" Adhesive Sheet to a piece of chip board. I cut a piece of Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to cover the chip board. I peeled the backing of adhesive sheet off and apply Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock. I placed the "naked" side of the chipboard face down onto the Needle Book Diecut and run through the diecut machine.

I placed the Art Screens Stars stencil on top of the diecut and loaded an Art Dauber with Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and rub over the stencil until I had achieved the desired effect. I cut five Journal Lines on Ivory Cardstock slightly smaller than the book and fold in half and punched two small holes into the spine of the book. I placed the folded pages inside the book and where the holes are in the spine marked off one of the pages and then punch holes into all pages. I threaded the needle and sewed the pages into the book and tie off.
I inked the BBQ Grill Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut the grill image out, adhered to the cover of the recipe book and add three glossy dots to the legs of the grill.

I cut the word "recipes" from the Farmhouse Market on Ivory Cardstock and glue to the cover. I also cut a piece of elastic cording and tie to the belly band. Once desired tightness of the band is achieved place around the recipe book.

Now all I have to do is add all my old recipes that I have laying around into my little recipe booklet. No more searching because everything will be in one place! 😀 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
