Recipe Holder

I'm making three of these recipe holders. They will be gifts for friends. I'm putting together a package for three friends with a kitchen theme. I've already made aprons and now I'm finishing up these recipe holders. The clipboards are from the office supply store. I covered the front of the clipboard with scrapbooking paper and the back with pages from old recipe book. I added images from old apron pattern envelopes and stamped the word RECIPE. The entire clipboard is sealed with a multipurpose sealer and then ribbons were added. I will include a recipe enclosed in a plastic holder.
Hope my friends enjoy their recipe holders. I took my inspiration from Jane's Apron. She makes clipboards with the entire pattern envelop but I decided to just use a copy of the apron image and scrapbook paper. Check out her blog, she does some great things with vintage patterns and other vintage items.

Hi Pam:) Thanks for stopping at my blog and sharing your memories. I'm so happy to teach service to others through quilting. I want my 4-H'ers to know how important it is to help those in need and we can do it by creating something with our own two hands:) I'm so happy I brought back good times for you. We had a great fair and...my Mom & Dad's portrait won best of show, I'm sew happy. Our little town is having a quilt show this weekend and I entered a few things, it's a lot of fun. I love your recipe holders and treasures you found recently. Oh it is fun to find things:) Blessings, Jenna Louise
