Large Recipe Card File

I created this box for those who would rather use the larger (4x6") size recipe cards. The dividers are made from coordinating card stock and the tabs on the dividers are a Quickutz die. If you have any questions about the template please leave a comment and I'll be happy to clarify it.

Beeswax Technique

I've just discovered the fun and beauty of Beeswax!  I have had so much fun in the last few days working with vintage images and beeswax.  I'm actually going to copy some of my own family's images to work with.

Please check out My ATC's section of this blog and see the ones I've created and have up to trade.

Fellow Readers

I was introduced to a really cool website the other day.  I do try to read a little but I have too many hobbies.  

If you love to read here is a site that you'll enjoy

Holiday Photo Ornament

I love this little ornament.  So simple to make but with so much character.  This is also a good way to use those little scraps of paper and cardstock.

Chip board or heavy cardstock 2 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Patterned paper 4" x 7"
Ribbon 6-7"
Cardstock (desired number pages) 2" x 5"
Bone Folder
Cutting Tool

Cut all materials to size.  Score and crease with bone folder chip board at 2 5/8" and 2 7/8".  Fold cardstock in half.  Apply adhesive to back side of chipboard and apply to patterned paper.  Miter corners of patterned paper by cutting at a diagonal at each corner, being careful not to cut less than 1/16" of an inch near the cardstock corner.  Crease and fold ends of patterned paper over edge of cardstock, repeat this at the ends.  Carefully crease patterned paper along the score lines of cardstock.  Fold ribbon in half and apply adhesive to the back cover approximately half way between the spine and the end of the chipboard.  Adhere pages (signatures) of cardstock together one page to the next page.  Apply adhesive to the back of the first pages and apply it to the inside of the front cover.  Apply adhesive to the last page of cardstock, holding the cover flat against the surface, apply the last page to the back cover. Embellish outside covers as desired.  

*Hint:  When printing photographs, use 4x6" photo paper and choose wallet size for the size of photos.  Use a punch less than 2" to punch out photos for pages.
