While I was in Brisbane at the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo I did a class with Alison Hannah from Kaisercraft. It was to make a recipe book. We were provided with a kit which included papers from the Tea at Elsie's range, Chipboard journal (includes pages), ribbons, diecut elements, chipboard letters, rings etc.
I finished mine at home because I like to use 'the glue and file the paper back' technique to cover chipboard. Here is the finished result. I've put a 'Leigh' touch to my recipe book and added many more dividers than the original. The dividers can be made from single sheets of co ordinating papers or as some of mine are, two sheets taped together. The tabs are just the die cut elements folded in half and attached to each divider, ascending so as not to overlap each other, much like a set of tabbed dividers you buy in the newsagency.
The letters I used for my titles are black peel offs because I wasn't fussed on the ones that were in the kit which were letters on a square white sticky background.
I made pockets for some of the dividers with the co-ordinating papers, then used up the rest of die cut elements by decorating some of my dividers.
Easy. The only thing to be done now is to mod podge the covers, front and back to protect them.
I didn't photograph every divider, very tedious but I'm sure you get the idea but if you want to know more, please email me. :)
Thanks for visiting today and happy crafting.
