Scrapbook Recipe Card
Materials and Tools:
12-inch paper trimmer
awl or paper piercer
acid-free archival glue
standard hole punch
black dye ink pad
black archival journaling pen or computer
red acrylic paint
brown card stock for base
red card stock tags
black letter stickers
gold mini-brads and large brads
alphabet rubber stamps
1. Cut the card-stock base for the recipe card according to the size of the lunchbox.
2. Dry-brush red acrylic paint on the edges and background of the card stock.
3. Tear the chef paper into two pieces and, using acid-free archival glue, attach one piece to the right side of the card stock and the other to the left side.
5. Punch two holes in the left tag with an awl or paper piercer; place the flowers on top, and thread the mini-brads through the holes. Make a hole with the awl in the right tag. Attach a flower and a mini-brad through the hole.
7. Attach the tags with archival adhesive to the front of the recipe-card base.
8. Cut ribbon and wrap it around the brass brads to make a holder for the recipe card.
10. Cut red card stock to 4 by 6 inches and ink the edges in black for the recipe card.
11. Write the recipe on the red card with a black journaling pen, or use a computer to type it.
12. Rubber-stamp the recipe title onto the card stock base and slide the recipe into the ribbon holder.
