What's Cookin? by Shellye McDaniel

Are you looking to host a bridal shower or need a house-warming gift for a recent graduate? Today I'm sharing a unique Recipe Keeper featuring the new "Apron Strings" Collection!




  The keeper starts will two pieces of 4.25"X7.25" chipboard dressed in patterned paper for the covers.  To the front cover, I added layering of die-cuts and stickers.




For the inner pages, I used an assemblage of die-cut apron shaped pages (see the PDF to create your own!) and sheets of 6X8 page protectors that were cut in half to accommodate the 4x6 recipe cards in the collection kit.





After assembling the apron pocket page, tags were cut from the Tags paper and tucked inside of the pockets.  I used left-over tags and attached them (by the top tab) to the top of the clear page protector.

I used various images and sentiments from the clear stamp set and added them to small premade tags.  These tags were attached to the clips that were used to hold the tags in place.





To the back of each apron page I added a small photo mat and tab stickers.  These pages can be used for photos of completed dishes or working in the kitchen!






In finishing, two holes were punched at the top of each page, page protector and cover page, and 1.25" rings were used to hold the pages together. If you're planning a bridal shower, have guests complete the recipe cards and add tips and tricks to the tags...such a meaningful keepsake!

NOTE: To use the PDF template simply print, trim out and trace.  You may also wish to scan and reduce the size to fit your project.

Thanks for joining!
