Recipe Book

I made these Apron recipe books for my sisters and Mom. Ive seen them on-line and at SplitCoastStampers (my thanks to them all). I made the shape myself because I couldn't find one in any of my cricut cartridges. I used chipboard for the outside covers and thicker cardstock for the inside pages. Its 9 x 6 with the arms traced and cut, then all the other pieces traced/cut. Punched holes at the top and used eyelets. I assembled all the pages, made pockets for the recipe cards and decorated them and the cover. Used ribbon to bind them and a long piece at the waist to tie in back to keep it closed. I've seen these bound at the sides with a bind it all or cinch.
