This has been one of my most favorite projects to create....evah. :-)
This lovely little book was created using products from the November Cocoa Daisy kit.
As some of you already know, I love this season because of the rich color palette and traditions through these cozy months.
I wanted to make a festive recipe book for a gift, to share some of my Fall time favorites.
The construction of this book was quite fun and easy! In the kit, there was a lovely piece of fabric that I couldn't wait to play with. I couldn't decide if I wanted to cut out the paisleys and handstich them onto felt, and use them as embellishments....or use it as the cover. I decided on the cover... I used MODGE PODGE to adhere the fabric to the chipboard. When it dried it provided a very nice and solid surface, perfect for adding the collage of Fall themed rub-ons. For the pages of the recipe book, I was inspired to alter a note card for the Fall quote. I used Rhonna Farrer stamps in FiberScraps Tea Stain ink. I also used the FiberScraps Tintz for the water color effecton the note card. A leave and jewel were added for visual interest :)
I simply printed the quote and recipes on a plain piece of computer paper. I alredy pre-cut the papers, so I just taped the cardstock and note card right over the printed computer paper and re-printed, printing perfectly on my cardstock and note card. Gotta love that :) A last touch of rich gold ink was daubed around the edges of the book.
This would be a fun idea for any season, Summer BBQ, Christmas Favorites and so on. The possibilities are endless and I am looking forward to creating more for gifts!
