Recipe File


I have the last piece to show today that I made using the new Cocoa Daisy June Kit.
Here's my recipe file that I made my Mum for her birthday.
I really enjoy baking and Mum's forever asking me for the recipes, so I made her this.

It's a piece of corrugated card, stuck on to a larger piece of patterened paper.
The large fabric brads hold the stationery clips in place. Then when you want to use a recipe card, you simply unclip and clip the recipe you want to the front.

Each recipe is on a separate card measuring around 11x11cm.
This pumpkin cake is one of my faves.

Mum loved that I'd taken all the photos myself too.

And the last one which is fixed to the board

I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I can also make new cards now to add to it as I try and find new recipes that I like.

If you fancy a kit, grab one whilst they are still in stock. You can see them here.
Christine has added extra addons as they've been selling out so fast, but I've noticed that some have already sold out.
