A Fun Project

Today I am showing you a project that I have been wanted to make for months!  I finally took a few hours and did it!  I was kind of motivated by Iheartorganizing Dare to DIY link up.

Yep - It's a Favorite Recipe Holder.  Yes, like all of us, I have many cookbooks, but I wanted one to hold my "go-to" recipes.  You know, the ones you like to make often, but never remember how to.  Now, I have a convenient holder!  I used my Top Dog Mason Jar Die, along with the Mason Jar Album Finishers, and some recycled cardboard from various stuff.

I covered all the pages with fun designer paper, and put a title on it using the The Stamps of Life, Boxes4abc.  

I cut off the side of an envelope so it would fit on the page, and used it to hold my recipe cards.  Eventually, I will list [on the outside of the envelope] what recipes I have in the inside of the envie for easier use.

I also left some pages open for additional categories, and/or if I have too many recipes cards for one envie.  

I am looking forward to using this simplified system of finding a recipe when I need it.



Thanks for stopping by~

What a cool recipe book and so clever the way you used a jar image for the design. This is a great idea. All our favorite family recipes were put into a family album notebook by my daughter and she included family photos as well. I love that book. And, she made one for each member of the family as well. It was a lot of work for her to do and it is gift all of us will cherish forever. They were our Christmas gifts one year so I bet these would make great gifts too!

Very cooll! I have recipes scattered all over the place - in print, online - and can't find anything when I need it! Your Favs holder here would solve that! Fabulous!
