Life is What You Bake It Waterfall Recipe Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! Some days I feel just like the harried cook on the cover of this Life is What You Bake it Recipe Folio. How about you? It usually happens when I’ve decided to get “just one more thing” done in the studio…and then suddenly, it’s time to eat–but dinner is not ready! Uh-oh! Thankfully after almost 46 years of fixing supper, I have a trusty repertoire of fast and good meals tucked away in my noggin. It never hurt, however, to have them written down for easy reference. So I designed this clever little folio to house those tried and true, life-saving recipes.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Poppy Red Taffeta Ribbon is the perfect playmate for these Country Craft Creations What’s Cooking papers. The red and aqua color palette is perfectly retro. I had so much fun decorating the cover of this 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ x 1″ folio.
I dug through my stash of ribbons and found this Sheer Cherry Red Organza, which works perfectly with the Poppy Red Taffeta and the paper collection. Then I found all sorts of wonderful little doo-dads to dress up the cover.
I even found a set of miniature flatware and a big ole’ vintage button to add to the party!
A Peek Inside
The recipes are housed inside a double waterfall feature. Top each waterfall with a string tie envelope for even more storage.
The recipe cards that go with this paper collection are absolute perfection!
Each side of the folio has 3 pocket pages with 2 recipe cards tucked inside. There’s plenty of room for more cards in each pocket, too.
Create a pocket behind each waterfall to hold a 4 3/4″ x 5″ folio. This is a great place to add another recipe, or photos of the family members who provided them.
I think this type of folio would be a great gift at a bridal shower. Each person in attendance could write down her favorite “tried and true” recipe for the bride to be.
I know we all use online sources for recipes these days. But you know what? Sometimes a website is down, or a blog stops publishing. Then you wish you had taken the time to put that precious recipe down on paper! Am I right?
I believe it’s time for me to make myself a recipe album. Some of my cookbooks are literally falling apart. Over the holidays, I realized what a jumble my recipes are. So one of my goals for 2022 is to get them all in order. I’ll keep you posted on how that project goes.
Thanks for stopping by!
