Today I'm sharing with you my project, a Christmas recipe book!  I thought it would be nice to have a place to hold the recipes that we use at Christmas time for our family dinner.  The designer paper is from Graphic 45, the St. Nicholas Collection.

On each of the pages there is a pocket that holds a tag or two.  I will be writing the recipe on the back of the tags. If the recipe is too long then I will just place it in the pocket.  The book has ten pages.  Take a look at the images below for a peak inside.

I added a few embellishments, including wink of stella, glitter, some holly leaves, twine and ribbon. I did not want the book to get to bulky.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and you are inspired to make your own.
Below is one more picture of the book looking down at it.

Have a great day.
