Turn this album into a heirloom piece by combining favorite recipes with photos of family get-togethers. I used 12 paper bags - each bag has a tag where you can write the name of the recipe category. In the inside front cover pocket, there is a 3-page list of measuring equivalents, abbreviations and emergency substitutions. In the inside back cover there is another sheet where you can list favorite recipes.
The front of each bag has a flap that opens to reveal a pocket with a recipe card where you can write the names of recipes in that section, or use the pocket to hold more recipe cards. On the back of each paper bag is another flap with pocket where I tucked in some of the Graphic 45 tags that came with the paper collection. I also used beautiful papers from my stash to create this album.
The album measures 9"w x 12"h and is 4" thick. It's held closed with a strap and buckle. The spine is covered with fabric and there is a nameplate for a title. There is also a small die-cut on the back cover for a small note. I didn't put any additional embellishments on the cover so that it can be stood up on a shelf. (While the papers and glue used are acid-free, the paper bags are not acid-free therefore it's recommended that you use replicas of your original photos in this album.)
Below is a video that shows the recipe album in more detail. If you have difficulties running the video you can view it on my YouTube channel at: https://youtu.be/UT5zNvts1E8
I'm also including photos below. (Not all pages are shown.)
I really enjoy my craft so I pay extra special attention to details. Comes from a smoke-free and pet-free home.
