Hello Friends! It’s Leanne here today sharing an easy Recipe File Folder mini album that will keep all your favourite family recipes together in one place! This project is also perfect to create as a gift for those who love cooking or are just starting out as a beginner chef!
To create this stand alone file folder you will need some sturdy cardstock as your base and your favourite Pebbles Inc paper collection. I am using the new Woodland Forest and Warm & Cozy collections. Let’s get started!
Other supplies will include two small jump rings and the Pebbles Inc Harvest Dies: Tab & Recipe Card.
Trim several pieces of patterned paper with the metal die and two pieces of coordinating cardstock to 12”x4”.
note: When cutting the patterned paper using the metal die, be aware of the positioning of the pattern on the paper. I have kept all the tabs on the top left side for cohesion. This is simply a personal preference.
Take one of the cardstock pieces and cut in half (4”x6”). Score a fold line at the 1”, 3” and 5” points. Fold to create peaks and valleys – a concertina fold. On the second piece of 12”x4” cardstock, score and fold a line at 6”.
Add adhesive to the 1” areas on the smaller piece of cardstock and attach to the inside of the taller 12”x6” piece.
Punch holes in the top of the cardstock stand at the 1” and 3” marks. Do the same with the file folder recipe cards.
Add some inserts for writing down recipes from ledger patterned paper. Trim the paper to 3”x6” in size. Secure all of the paper pieces to the cardstock base with jump rings.
Embellish your front cover and add the word “EAT!” using the Woodland Forest Alpha Thickers.
Now all you have to do is fill this mini with all your favourite recipe dishes. Thanks for visiting.
