Farmhouse Recipe Book

Maya Road | Maya Road

This counter top recipe book is a great gift for a teacher, add some favorite family recipes of your own and have the class get some recipes from home to start to fill it.  Your teachers will be thrilled...or make it and keep it for yourself!! 

  I used the Clear Acrylic Calendar Standwith the chipboard pages.  The perfect thing about this book is that it fits the pre-made 4x6 recipe cards perfect.  You just have to punch the holes in them to match the rings and put it in it's proper section.

You can also use the Clear Acrylic Recipe Stand with Chipboard Pages, I didn't have one on hand so I used the Calendar stand, which worked perfect for me!

  I used the Jonathon Mini Alphabet (good) and the Jonathon Chipboard Alphabet set (EaTs), regular size. I used the Turquoise Metallic Maya Mist for the title letters.

 For the letters on the tabs, I used the Jonathon Alphabet Rubons. They were the perfect size for my categories.  I mixed up the upper and lower case for spacing reasons and to add character to the words.

So, for more looking through all my cookbooks trying to remember which book that "certain recipe" is I can compile all our favorites.  I can flip right to it and have it open and ready.  When I'm not cooking it makes a darling country farmhouse home decor piece!!

Bon Appetite'
