Have each person bring their recipe pre-printed on a 4 x 6 recipe card and drop it in a pretty basket. Then, send them all home with her in an organized way by slipping them into the sleeves of a sweetly embellished photo album.
1. Begin by cutting a piece of patterned paper long enough to wrap around the front cover, spine, and back cover of a small photo album and adhere it to the cover with a strong adhesive such as a double-sided adhesive sheet. Consider using a Fiskars corner punch on the corners.
2. Next, create an embossed die cut using the Fuse Creativity System®. Stitch around the perimeter if desired and adhere it to the front cover of the album.
3. Add a heart punched with the My Funny Valentine Large Squeeze Punch, some chipboard letters, a small sentiment banner, and tie the album closed with some pretty ribbon. Set the album next to the basket on a table and you have both a sentimental gift and a bridal shower decoration.
