Beautiful Italian Recipe Holder

Welcome to the Robin's Nest Blog Hop!

Today is our Bi-annual Blog Hop!
Our theme this Blog Hop is Recipes. 

I admittedly am not really a cook. so when I read that 
the theme was recipes, I gasped!
What am I going to do?

I thought and thought,
Should I make a recipe book?
Should I show my favorite recipe?
Should I bough out?
Really, that was the best option.

But, I went in the scrapbook room, 
and started working on other projects, trying to get
myself motivated to make this post,
and I remembered Gina's Designs, an easel
type thing that I have been saving for a special project.

This is IT!!!!

So, just as we have finished new counter tops and backsplash
for our kitchen, the new papers were produced
a few months ago, and it all became real,
and my recipe holder is now finished, and I 
love it!

I hope you do too.

I started with Gina's Designs Easel.

 I then painted the scroll work,
and glued the back of Saffron Honey Linen CS
on the face of the easel.

Then after that I used another sheet of  Saffron Honey and
cut out the larger designs from the paper individually.

I popped them with pot dots and glue dots.

It is hard to see here all the elements that are 3 dimensional.
But in the next few pictures hopefully you will be able to see
the dimensions in the holder.

Here is one of the cut out pieces from the Saffron Honey Linen CS.

On the other side of the recipe holder, is Recipes (spelled wrong)
I found out when I was posting!  I will fix that.
And a few elements just made with papers from the new
Saffron Sunrise product line.

Here you can see the pop out of the "fountain".

More of the holder, papers, dew drops, and Eiffel tower over
in the corner from one of our stickers. 

I made a little twirly with Black Diamond drops, 
and a gold dew drop.
The gold and black dew drops, with the black glitzy strawy ribbon
 come from a embellishment pack called Saffron Straw.

Just a few more shots of the recipe holder

The rose is cut from the Saffron Honey Linen paper too,
I love how the linen show on the rose,
and I love how the linen paper feels!

Here again is the finished recipe holder,
next to it is a recipe book that Rachel made for 
each member of our family a few years ago,
It has recipes in it from all members of the family,
and all ages,

Some fun memories in this book,
how to kill a moose and made dinner,
marshmallow sandwiches,
and much more,
the little kids had such fun ideas,
and it is such a fun recipe book.

I hope that you have a great day,
that you have found lots of ideas on recipe ideas,
and have enjoyed this post.

I love to hear your comments!
Follow me,
there is so much more to come!
