Gingerbread Recipe Card

Gingerbread Recipe

This project is one 'page' layout from a cook book I am making for my girls.  The project was inspired by a Youtube video created by My Scrap World.  You can watch her easy to follow tutorial here.  It's constructed entirely out of manila folders and presents loads of creative options, and if you have time to watch the video you will get an idea of how this one layout will be made into a recipe folio.

The recipe card itself is created with a Mo Manning digital stamp called Witches Trick.  Isn't she fabulous! I have coloured her with Lyra pencils on Kraft card.

Gingerbread Recipe File

This is a view of the file folder when open, eventually several of these will be be adhered together to create one big recipe file.  The front flap that has the recipe card adhered to it drops down to reveal a recipe for royal icing, as well as a photo of little gingerbread boys that I made using this recipe.

Gingerbread Recipe File

The right pocket holds a tag which will be used for writing notes.  As this is being handed down to my children I felt it was important that it had my handwriting somewhere, so I will jot down a few notes about the recipe for them.

The paper is from a stack called Country Basics by Crafter's Choice, together with regular old manila card files inked with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.  The stamps "Cooking Together" and "A Tasty Tradition" is from a set called Let's Eat by TPC Studio.  The "Baked Fresh" embellishment is from the Nan's Kitchen collection by Kaisercraft.

Gingerbread Men

Gingerbread clones!  I sent my son to school with a bag of these and some cheese sticks to use at light sabers so he could have gingerbread clone wars :o)
