2010 Xmas Apron Mini Book

OK - I know it's not Xmas yet..........this is yet another one of those kits I had from last year that I finally got around to completing......it does feel great to finish something. This album is meant to be a Xmas Cookie Exchange mini book meant to be used with Loose rings. There are white eyelets for the ribbon at the apron top. The white eyelets and ribbon were the only things I provided. Everything else was included in the kit. The finished project size is 5" x 7". The apron pockets are wide enough to fit a 4" x 6" recipe.

Here is the Gingerbread man removed from the pocket - a cute little note can be written on the backside.

A close up of the front embellishments:

Lots of ribbon on the spine:
There is enough pockets for 22 recipes - that's a lot!!!! Room on the apron front for some journaling or small photo. Here are photos of the inside pages and also close-ups of some embellishments used:








In the next couple weeks, I will be adapting and morphing this apron style recipe book into other recipe versions so stay tuned. Thank you for stopping by today and hope you enjoyed this project I completed.
