If you're looking for a quick and easy gift, one that will deliver something thoughtful and creative, and be a treasure for years to come, why not make a family recipe book?

The following Close To My Heart items were used to create this lovely recipe book:

~Z1141 My Creations 3-Ring Binder
~X7114B Bella Paper Pack
~D1367 Bon Appetit Stamp Set
~ D1364 Recipe Box Stamp Set

1. Cut a piece of Bella B&T paper to fit front of binder.
2. Cut a 2nd piece long enough that will cover the back and side of the album and wrap around to the front.
3. On the end that wraps to the front (the pink shown on the left), fold and crease back to the left as shown. Glue in place.
4. Stamp as desired.

The 3-Ring binder has 5 tabbed inserts than can be used as recipe category separators. Cover each insert with any coordinating Bella B&T paper and stamp as desired.

Gift-giving suggestion: Make several recipe books and give as gifts for the holidays.
