Christmas Recipe Card Folio and Tutorial

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  If you're like me, about 70% of my baking takes place during the Christmas holiday season.  I like to bake for my family, of course.  But I also like to bake for friends, family and business associates.  Keeping all my Christmas recipes together in one spot makes the job easier.  So I used the October Ribbon Club Assortment to deck out a super cute little Recipe Card Folio.

The cover of this "from scratch" folio measures 6 1/2" x 4 1/2".  Bold Check Christmas Ribbon from the Club Assortment serves as the folio closure.  I decorated the focal image with layered Forest Green Satin with a Grosgrain Edge and Pinecones and Branches Satin.  Tie on some itty bitty jingle bells with a bit of Gold Metallic String to add an extra dash of holiday flavor.

I used another bit of this ribbon on the spine of the album to dress up my charm dangle.

The interior of the folio has lots of fun interactive elements, like this double waterfall feature.  Each side has 3 double sided pages and one single page.

The inside pages have pockets to house 6" x 4" recipe cards.  You can pull the cards out when you want to use them, and put them back in for safe keeping when you are done.

Use Forest Green Satin ribbon from the Club to create a pretty closure for this gatefold page.

Slip a photo or recipe card behind the belly band that's inside the gatefold page.  A small envelope is a great place to stash a little gift card or special note.

I put together a flip through video along with a basic tutorial for the folio base, just in case you want to try to make one.  This is not a complete tutorial, but it is enough to get you started!






Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?  I'm trying to get a head start this year.  I'll let you know how that goes!  LOL


Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
