Make Recipe Books for Recipes for Mom on Mother’s Day
CRAFTS MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:
*notebook, 8Y2 by 11 inches
*2 pieces of ribbon, each 8 inches long
DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING RECIPE FILE BOOK:
Paste two pages together on two sides (marked A and B in drawing) and leave side C open. Repeat this until you have 24
“envelopes” in the notebook. Mark each envelope with the kind of recipes to be kept there—Appetizers, Soups, Meats, Fish, Vegetables, Desserts, Drinks, Sandwiches, etc.
Glue the pieces of ribbon onto the center of the back and front covers of the notebook.
Glue decorative paper onto the covers. Cut the ends of the ribbon on the bias, to prevent fraying. You can make the same file for patterns, bills, or personal letters.
