Christmas Scrapbook: Christmas Cookie Recipe

Oh, this making this Christmas scrapbook was extremely fun. It didn’t take long because you try to get as many people involved as you can. This works best if you happen to be involved in a scrapbook or rubber stamping group, which Mom is. Mom is a member of an online group for paper crafting called Perfect friends. The members of that group decided to participate in a cookie swap, but instead of sharing actual home baked cookies, we made a scrapbook page with the main journaling on the page being the recipe of our favorite cookies.

The scrapbook pages are 6X6” pages, making it a small enough book so that you can place it on a shelf in your kitchen, but large enough that you can still see the recipe on the page. There were 16 women that participated in the swap and each created 16 of the same scrapbook page layouts for their cookie recipe. Most women stayed with a Christmas theme or followed a theme pertaining to their cookie. For example, the third picture is a scrapbook page created by one of the ladies in my group (Barbara Foster) and the page featured a recipe for Royal Coconut Cookies. Her page featured a hula dancer and coconut palm trees because of her cookies featuring coconuts.

The first picture is a view of the front of the recipe book, and each one was decorated based on the owner of the book. This is the front cover of mom’s which features elements needed in cooking and a touch of Christmas with the gingerbread man and holly berries.

There are so many paper and embellishment choices you can use to decorate this recipe scrapbook, so the possibilities to what you could create are almost limitless.

We used a book binding tool to bind the pages together and hold the album’s recipe together, making it even more useful in a kitchen. The only thing this recipe book needs, and I wish I would have thought about it before it was put together, was a table of contents page. A table of contents page would be great for locating a recipe quickly without having to thumb through all of the pages, but we will save that for next time.

Now get to scrappin’ those scrapbooks and keepsakes!
