Bon Appetite Recipe Book

This is the best recipe book I have ever made!!! The colors are so PERFECT!!!! This is a kit from Archivers on line store call Bon Appetite Recipe Pocket Book made with medium size shipping bags. This kit can be purchased here. The photo instructions are very clear and easy to understand. I've added some of my own twist to the front: red/black grosgrain ribbon to the rings and also added the fork/knife hanging "charms" from the left over paper. There's always lots of paper left over. I did decide to sponge all the edges with brown ink for that "aged" look.

I added a Hero Arts Spoon/Fork Stamp using black ink on the red envelope.
I added a black brad which swivels to enable the recipe card to be removed from the pocket.
I also made the corrugated band to hold the recipe card which slides out. This is different from the original instructions. Note the burlap tag with black mini clothespin which was included int he kit.

Here's the center of the recipe book.

And with the tags and recipe cards removed:
Another band holding the recipe card. Note the canvas tag with a mini black clothespin.

All the tags and recipe cards removed.

Here's another page where a brad was added so the recipe card can be removed after the messaged is "swivelled" upwards.

Back of recipe book: I added the fork/spoon image with a red mat.
each section is part of the medium size shopping bag shown here:
Hope you enjoyed this pocket book. A very happy crafting day to all of you.
