Recipe for a happy childhood – Bon Appetit

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with the lovely Bon Appetit Collection from Kaisercraft.

This is a fabulous collection for all the bakers out there especially with The Great British Bake-Off being so popular. With my first layout though, I wanted to show that it doesn’t have to be about cooking so used the recipe cards for a different idea.

IMG_1400 smallI began with Stir which features an open book, trimmed around the top and left of the spoon with a craft knife and also the middle on the right, and added 3 x recipe cards so they looked as if they were inside.

IMG_1414 smallI found a recipe online for “a happy childhood” and wrote it onto the top card with a Micron pen and tucked it under the spoon. Next came a piece of Cool 4 x 12″ which I folded and twisted to replicate a tea-towel, then cut along the edge of the tea-towel on the base page and inserted and arranged underneath.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, don’t forget to pop back soon for more fabulous ideas from my teamies.

Until then, take care,
