Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Card

Cookie Recipe Card

This project is a 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 Bronte and Loius.  Such a cutie! The theme this week at Mo Manning's Challenge Blog is "Friends", and there are no greater friends in the world than a boy and his dog.  The recipe and image are printed on Kraft and coloured with Lyra pencils.

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 hot fudge sundae cookie cups, as well as a photo of the chocolate chip cookies that I made using this recipe.  Personally I am very visually motivated when it comes to recipes, so I felt it was really important to include photos of what the food actually looks like!

The paper is from a stack called Country Basics by Crafter's Choice, together with regular old manila card files inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. 

Thanks for looking, I hope you are having an awesome day! :o)
