Next, I made my recipe book by printing out recipes on different papers, including velum and transparency. Then I sewed, stamped, inked, embellished, and pretty much did whatever I wanted to and attatched it to the chipboard with some heavy duty glue and this is the result.
I made it so that it stands by itself, and as I flip through it, I can choose a recipe and it will still stand upright. That way it won't get messy by being on the counter top. I actually keep it on my microwave. It's perfect and it's at eye level, which is nice.
It's a fun idea, I think. So if you like to scrapbook, branch out and try something else. I think you'll be glad you did.
