a recipe to share...

Happy Thursday everyone! So excited to share with you today my Paper Fashions Etc. project...I remember when my mother was prepping me for moving out on my own to attend the university two hours away so many years back now. She created a cook book of family favorites and included a few blank cards so I could begin to add my own. That book is still in my cupboards and I reach for it often to find one of my favorite bake cookies. These recipe cards take me back to that moment and love the thought of passing recipes on to friends and family. These cards would also be fabulous for place cards at a cooking or dinner tag for that special cook...or an adorable embellishment on a card. Plenty of perfect sentiments to accompany the images as well. Maybe I will get back in my crafting kitchen and mix up some of these projects to share with you next week.

Supplies used: kitchen clatter by Paper Fashions Etc., mini envelopes from Martha Stewart, ribbon and lace trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon, twine, and vintage buttons.

Off to mail some packages today...
