Let’s Create a Family Recipe Book!

Things you need:

Unlined journal

Recipe cards (the more sauce-splattered, the better)

Wine or Champagne labels

Photos from family meals


Photo corners


Shimmery alphabet stickers (available at crafts stores)



How to make:

Color-copy all recipe cards, photos, and labels if you want to preserve the originals or make more than one gift book.

Compile the memorabilia by time period, holiday, or any other theme that inspires you.

Affix the items horizontally in the journal. Use photo corners for pictures and recipe cards and adhesive for labels and clippings.

Stick a title on the front of the journal with alphabet stickers (using a ruler helps), and finish off with a ribbon.
