Project: Drink Recipe Book

Every once in a while, I'll start a project that ends up taking 5 times as long as I'd anticipated. This recipe book was one of those projects. This May, my sister turned 21, so I decided to make her a cutesy handmade recipe book as a gift.

For the book, I used this cute little photo album.

Then, I dug into my scrapbook paper arsenal to create the pages.

I used some awkward pictures to trace the pages out, since the book was made for 4 x 6 photos.

This was the part that took up all the time. I created the pages using cut paper, sticker letters, and some fancy handwriting. The most challenging part was finding recipes - I thought I knew a LOT more than I actually did! Pinterest was my savior here.

Each recipe fit perfectly :)

Note: Chocolate Cake Shots are the best.

Fun Fact: The background paper on the right came from a greeting card.

The cutest recipe was also the most lazily glued. Oops.

Aaaaaand this is where I decided that I didn't NEED to fill the whole book.
 It's bad enough she's getting it a week late!
