Gift Ideas: Recipe Cinch Book

One of the things we associate the holiday season with is good food, so why not create a Holiday Favorites Recipe Book as a gift for one of your loved ones this year.  The recipe book I made below was easy to put together using the North Pole collection, my cinch machine, and this printable PDF file of my favorite recipes.

I used 6×6 chipboard for the covers, and the pages are made with 6×6 North Pole patterned paper.  I printed the recipe cards, cut them out, and mounted them on plain North Pole cardstock before adding them to the pages.

I used the File Tab Punch and Tab Labels to indicate the recipe categories.  The tab labels are so versatile and useful–they truly thought of everything.  The labels include recipe books, office organization, memory keeping, calendars, etc.

I kept the book design simple to save time during the busy holiday season, and the simple design allows for easy duplication for multiple recipients.  I also avoided unnecessary dimension since this book will likely be stored with other recipe books and I didn’t want to risk any embellishments on the front of the book getting knocked off or ruined.

If you’d like to create a Holiday Favorites Recipe Book of your own, simple print the recipe card PDF file HERE and then make your own Cinch book.  I’ve included a couple of blank recipe cards at the end for you to add your own favorite recipes.  Make one for yourself, and another for a loved one.  Enjoy!
