Hi, Connie here with a fun twist in handmade recipe & coupon books.  Joy Clair makes it easy with the Recipe Card set, Baked With Love set and Love Coupon.  All is needed is a cover for the books and some insert pages.

I started here~

The boxes were cleaned and cut down to 4″X 6″ for the recipe book and 4″ X 4″ for the coupon book.  The pages were cut for each of the books.  The next step was to stamp the recipe card and small images for the recipe book and the same for the coupon book.

After the pages were stamped the books were bond together using the Bind-It -All.  The fronts, of the books, were embellished with more stamped images and using 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L were popped up to give dimension to the stamped images.  Small tags were added to the covers also.

Some of my favorite recipes were hand written in the book.  On the back of the recipe card is a perfect spot for a photo of the recipe.  That is for another day ~

The coupons were stamped and created with special deals for the recipient of the coupon book.

Supplies used to create these two fun books:
Joy Clair: Baked With Love, Recipe Card, Lindsey Script Alpha and Love Coupon. 
Adhesive: 3D Foam Square mix and E-Z Runner Permanent Strips 
re-cycled boxes (cake mixes, crackers )
white cardstock
binding system
