Have you started thinking about your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions yet? I have! One of my resolutions is to try one new recipe each week. At the end of each month, I will choose one of my favorites and add it to a recipe book – the old fashioned way – by WRITING it down!! I am so excited to try new recipes and find some new faves – and by the end of the year I’ll have a little keepsake worth passing down someday! Here’s a look at my New Year’s Resolution Recipe Book featuring the “Along the Way” collection!
And here’s a look at how I created it:
I started with the “Bakeshop” paper, which is simply six recipe cards, printed front and back with beautiful designs:
Cut them all apart to prepare them for the recipe book.
I used two sheets of the paper so I would end up with 12 cards – one for each month. I may add more if I really love more than one per month, but this is a good starting point.
Here they are, all stacked up for the book:
Using coordinating patterned papers, I created a cover for my little recipe keepsake book. The printed die cuts and gold foiled foam thickers were perfect for my needs! I cut apart a few words to form the word “of.”
To make the cover a little more sturdy, I glued two pieces of patterned paper together. I also created a back cover with patterned papers.
Next, I sandwiched the cards between the covers
These fun pink clips (from a long-ago Pebbles collection) were perfect to clip it all together. Of course, a twine bow is a fun addition to ANY project!
I can’t wait to start trying new recipes as soon as the New Year arrives!
Tell us what your new year’s resolutions are!
And Happy New Year to YOU!!
