Christmas in July: 6x6 Recipe Books

Everyone has their favorite recipes!  Whether it be those you discovered on your own or those tried and true recipes from your Mother or Grandmother, a recipe book makes a great Christmas gift!  Maybe you know someone who is just setting up housekeeping?  Wouldn't a handmade recipe book be a thoughtful gift for that person?

One of the gifts I'll be making for my sisters this year for Christmas (shhh!  Don't tell them!) will be handcrafted recipe books.  I participated in a swap a few years ago and never did anything with the recipe cards!  Here are some photos of the recipe cards I did for the swap......

Chart House Mud Pie

Olive Garden's Pasta e Fagioli

Pine Bark

Seafood & Cheese Brunch Bake

Don't be afraid to use the reverse side of the card to finish up the recipe if necessary.  Just use your creativity and make some lovely little cards using those favorite recipes!  Altering a purchased 6x6 album would make this gift all the more special.  I hope I have inspired you with this project - be sure to show us what you make!
