Hi, it’s Marjan here today. I am so proud to be a guest designer at Pebbles in December because this month is my favorite month this year. It’s snowy, and you can do lot of fun things inside and outside the house like crafting, baking and skiing.
I love baking cookies during December, so I want to share this adorable mini recipe book with you.
Over here in Norway, where I live, you have to bake 7 different kinds of Christmas cookies. It is an old tradition that everyone does. You are also allowed to buy them if you do not have enough time to bake cookies all day long. Most people work here, and this time of the year can be pretty stressful. But homemade cookies are the best, right?
I have written down my favorite 7 recipes from 4 different countries (US, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands) and made this cute mini album to remember my all-time favorite Christmas cookies.
All of the ingredients are written on tags with the numbers one to seven. These tags are stuck between the pages, and make it super easy so that I can take these tags to the grocery store and do not have to write an extra list.
It was fun to make this album. I took these pretty papers from the Home for Christmas collection and glued them together to make the pages for my mini album. After that, I printed my recipes on patterned paper. I glued down all the recipes and scraps of patterned paper. I used these adorable kraft tags and embellished the pages with coordinating label stickers, die cuts and the pocket tags. I used some silver Thickers and sequins to let it sparkle. Love that!
I used cardboard, strong double-sided tape, washi tape in black and white and patterned paper to make the cover of the album.
I hope you like my recipe mini album!
