part 2 of an article I wrote for cookbook scrapbooks
Recipe Scrapbooking – I'll show you videos, links and ideas for creating 4 different kinds of scrap projects for all of your favorite meals. You can create albums just for you or get great gift ideas. There are so many kinds of albums and so many ways to organize and scrap your cooking adventures. Or maybe you want to put all of your heritage type recipes together...your grandmother's famous pumpkin pie and your Aunt Martha's creamed potatoes. I have put together 5 other ideas on this page ...you'll find a great video all about creating an heirloom recipe book.
By the way, this article is part 2 of a 2 part series –

Recipe Scrapbooking Idea 1 - Theme Album
This would be a fun idea
for a gift. You could do a holiday theme or a newly married theme or
superbowl party recipes or back yard BBQ recipes. You could put a menu
together and then include each recipe that goes with that. Maybe even
include a shopping list. They could be for yourself or a gift.

Recipe Scrapbooking Idea 2 - Rolodex Album
I originally saw the idea for a rolodex album in Donna Downey's Book Creative Albums. And I LOVED it! So, I made one myself. It isn't a recipe book but it could easily be adapted to that. If I made one, I would choose a recipe card and then place it inside a ziploc bag before I cooked from it...to keep it from getting messy. Here is my video:
Recipe Scrapbooking Idea 3- Paperbag Book
is a super elaborate paper bag album. You could do something much
simpler but you have to admire the work that went into this one. I have
made paperbag books and what I love most about them is the pockets. You
can include so many things in so many places in these albums. Click on
the Paperbag Books tab over in the nav bar to see mine.
Recipe Scrapbook Idea 4 – Mini Scrapbook Album Tin
Oh! Tins...they are SO fun!
Cocktail recipes tin
- I found a great article with photos all about making a recipe tin with
your favorite cocktail recipes. You can include photos of the people
who make them or when you drink them. : )
I can't remember where I first heard about making scrapbook mini albums out of tins but I got a book called Art Tins by Pinecone Press and learned everything I needed to know. Here is one of the albums I made: (not a recipe album but you could adapt it)
