Tabbed Chipboard Thanksgiving Recipe Mini Album
November 03, 2022
Tami here on the Clear Scraps Blog with you today. Are you enjoying the fall weather? That is, if you have "fall" weather in your area. Here in Texas, most fall days are a brisk 80 degrees! WOW! I better grab a sweater ;)
It's hard to think about Fall and not include Thanksgiving along with it. The colors, the pumpkins, and the pumpkin spice EVERYTHING that is in stores this time of year. They put that pumpkin spice in EVERTYHING it seems, from candles, to cookies, to coffee, to cereal! I even saw Pumpkin Spice potato chips the other day. Not so sure how those would be.
Our family has a lot of special Thanksgiving recipes. Every year we make my Grandma's cranberry sauce. My mom has her own special way to do the turkey, I make a pretty good gravy, and the homemade rolls are Mom's take on Grandma's recipe.
I thought this year, I'd ask everyone to write down the recipe for what they are bringing and I'd put them all together in a mini album.
I used Clear Scraps 6 X 6 Tabbed Chipboard Mini Album and embellished it with paint and papers and stickers...
To embellish the front cover, I painted the Stack Pumpkin Chipboard Embellishment before backing the openings with different printed papers...
I used each tabbed page as a divider for each section of recipes: Mains, Sides and Sweets. Take a look inside...
I prepped the pages by painting about 1" along the side with the holes using cream paint. I also painted the tabs and edges of each page.
Once the paint dried, I started adding my papers to embellish the covers and pages. Rub On letters were used to add the titles to the cover, tabs and pages.
1" book rings were used to bind the album and I tied each with 3 different coordinating ribbons.
I think these books would make a great gift for your guests, you could have them bring multiple copies of their recipes.
Thanks for stopping by! Please come back and visit us again soon!
