Throwback Thursday: Authentique Saucy Recipe Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I’ve cooked up something special in this Authentique Saucy Recipe Folio Tutorial for Throwback Thursday!  With the wintry weather all around the nation, this cheery retro paper collection from 2017 is just what we need to warm the cockles of our hearts!

I think you will be delighted at how easy it is to make this one sheet wonder.  All you need is one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ heavy kraft cardstock (110#) to make the base.  The decorative belly band was made with scraps left over from previous card making pursuits.

Nothing but sunshine and happiness here!  The video tutorial below will walk you through the easy steps for making the base, belly band, waterfall mechanism, box pocket and folio inserts.

A Peek Inside

How fun would it be to make this as a  Mother’s Day gift?  Fill it up with your family heritage recipes and you’ve made something really special!  Or, give it as a gift to a child who is moving into his/her first apartment.  You could even tuck a little grocery store gift card into the pocket along with the recipes.

TIP:  Add paper clips to the pages of the waterfall mechanism so that recipe cards can be slipped into place.  Then, when you want to cook, you can just slide the recipe card out folio and keep the rest of the folio out of the mess!

The box pocket design on this 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ folio provides even more room for favorite recipes.

You’ll learn how to make these cute tab topped magnetic closure folios in the tutorial, too.

Change out the papers, and you could make this same design for a new baby, a graduate, wedding shower, garden journal…or any occasion you please.  The possibilities are endless!

    What a wonderful folio, for anything … you said. I always wanted to know how to make the
    waterfall with a magnet strap, so thank you for that. You always do a wonderful job on your tutorial, (even though you said you were rushed) it was soooo very helpful I love your makes.
    Hope sunny days are ahead…..

    Hi, Kathy,
    This paper is cute as can be! I don’t know which was more fun, the paper or your cooking-themed comments. You really got cookin’!
    Your tutorials are the best! For someone like me who always thinks, “Why does she do that?” You pack these with lots of detail and cool ideas. Your efforts are so appreciated! I giggled thinking about how you might respond to the Art Glue clogging problem…your bottles don’t sit unused very long!
    Sending you some salty ocean air and California sunshine to warm your day!
    Love & blessings, Sandy

    You packed a lot into this one Kathy!!! Wow! Love it. We are in for another windy day here in my island paradise. Wind warnings and rain too. Yippee, the wild wild west coast!


    What a wonderful folio, Kathy!! I always love the attention to every detail as you go in the construction – just beautiful!!!

    Love the belly band! Delightful idea for friends who love to cook and bake! Great gift idea. I have the same question as Rosemary has about the Art glitter glue…always clogged and difficult to clean out. On a side note, instead of the craft paper I am buy the big sheets of white poster board at the $$ store, and cut it down…works beautifully with smaller albums, and scoring, too. I’ll give it a try following the instructions on your recipe book! Now all I need is some recipe paper!

    I love the cute recipe folio. This is on my to do list – I have the paper.
    Question – How do you keep your Art Glitter glue flowing so nice? I have cleaned the tips
    as directed several times and they clog often. Any suggestions?
    I watch almost all your tutorials and appreciate the time you take to make them.

    Mission accomplished cockles warmed and a wonderful moment of viewing another informative video. Very cool morning. The paper is fabulous and a moment of genius with the paper clip.
