This is a project I thought about for a very long time. I have many friends who readily share recipes and I think it would be nice to write them out for someone on a nice card, so, I created these little books that are used exactly for that.
First step is to cut some rectangle cardstock, just longer than the card stamp (so you have plenty of room for binding and scoring). I cut 12 pages for each book and then stamped using stazon (this is waterproof and has better depth of colour). I then scored using the perforation tool on the cutter kit. I used some strips of the domestic goddess paper to reinforce the base of each piece and even mixed the pattern up in each booklet to give some spunk LOL!!
You can see in this shot how they are perforated and can be torn from the booklet and given to a friend. Once you have 12 recipe card pages completed, you will need to cut a piece of window sheet the same size as your pages. This is to hold the stickers that can be placed on the top left hand side of the cards. The booklet can then be bound (in my case I used my bind it all and some left over wires from another project). They could be easily bound with a cropadile and some album rings.
The ‘stickers’ were made by stamping the images, colouring, punching and mounting them on coordinating cardstock. The stickers are then ‘mounted’ onto the plastic by adding a dimensional on the back and without removing the seond piece of backing, a glue dot was added to allow them to ‘stick’ to the window sheet. When removed for use they peel off, leaving behind the glue dot and the backing for the dimensional. I have made 12 stickers and stuck 6 on each side of the window page.
A quick decoration on the front and they are ready to go. If you would like more details, such as dimensions, then pop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll help you out.
