Recipes with Bon Appetit

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a little mini book using the Bon Appetit Kaisercraft collection.

076 (2)I’m one of those people who has a little ‘stash’ of recipes that are  all pushed into an old school recipe book of mine which I’ve had since I left school a very long time ago! Ahem about 40 years to be precise !

074So when I received this kit I decided to use the Recipe Cards to record some of the favourite recipes of mine that are scribbled on bits of paper – then I thought ‘Why not make a mini book’…

I started off with some Licorice Kaisercard, measuring two pieces to a tiny bit more than 6 x 4 inches. I then took a piece of Kaisercard Kraft cardstock and measured it to 6 x 4, then scored from one inch in every half an inch to one inch from the other end. Next I concertina folded it on the half inch scores to make the hinge as below.

063I stuck the one inch end pieces  to the edge of the black card. I then cut some more of the Kraft card into 6 x 4 to make the pages. These were then stuck onto one side of each hinge

The pages were made using lots of pieces from  the papers together with some from the 6.5  x 6.5  pad  and lots of items from the Collectables pack.

077 (2)I used some of the gorgeous Cool paper (the black checked) to make a triangular pocket inside the front cover and back so I can tuck some little bits and more recipe cards in.

I stuck some recipe cards onto some of the pages to record some of my special recipes.

078Some of the elements were raised up on foam tape. I also used some of the papers from the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad to cover the pages and use as little strips and corners.

079I used some of the index tabs from the sticker sheet to label the pages and some of the borders.080I drew some faux stitching around some of the Kraft card pages and cut around the collectables to define them a bit more. On this page I used a flower pot and some herbs.

Some Kraft tags came in very useful too as extra embellishments .

082 (2)I also used some Black Soot Distress Ink to go round some of the edges.

I really enjoyed cutting and snipping and using the many elements in this collection and now my recipes are tidy !

I hope you can pop back to see some more inspiration very soon form the team.
