Project - Christmas Recipe Book

A lovely little gift idea this - why not tuck one of these little recipe books inside a Christmas recipe card when you give it? 

Also a great fund-raising idea for school fayres - why not put a little bag of flour, mixed fruit and/or other ingredients into a clear bag with the recipe book and tie with a big bow? Or put ingredients into a cheap mixing bowl with perhaps a wooden spoon and the recipe book. Again, wrap with cellophane and tie with a bow. The possibilities are endless!

This book is made from a few of the little A6 recipe cards together with one of the A6 recipe book covers - you can also make a larger book with the A5 recipes and an A5 size cover.

To make, print your recipe and cover sheets onto thin card and cut them out with a craft knife and ruler. Measure and mark the cards 3cm from the ends then punch with a small plier punch a couple at a time (or all together if your card is thin enough). Push red 3mm satin ribbon through each hole and tie into a bow.
