Cookin' with Sabor ~ Part dos

Hi, Jean here to finish off my Colorful Cookbook.
(read all the way down for happy news)

Family and Friends come first with me!  Love to entertain all the time for any reason or no reason at all!  

I collect Cookbooks and make them for gifts.  Wedding showers, housewarmings and small ones for hostess gifts.  

I like a binder format with removable page protectors to allow adding or changing the contents.  

I HAVE A SAD STORY ~ My blog post was all finished and ready to go, I wanted to just add one tweak when BOOM!   I inadvertently hit a key and POOF, the entire post disappeared.  Don't know what I pressed but I will never do it again!   Therefore, it is shorter but you still get the point!

For my project, I used a binder I got at a general merchandise store, ( we never say the name of the evil chain that begins with W and ends with mart)

I covered front and back covers as well as the inside with fabulous SABOR papers, any will work since they are mostly all coordinated and work together.

Ribbon is a savior for this type of project, it covers any areas that may not have been perfectly cut or trimmed.   I use scissors and a rotary cutter interchangeably.

A tip for using ribbons, it is a good idea to singe the cut ends so they do not unravel.   VERY SLIGHTLY use a flame, match or lighter to barely touch the edge for a second or two at most.   ALWAYS BE CAREFUL!!!

I created a bookmark using a small wooden clothespin ( a regular size will work too)  I attached ribbon and a fabric flower with E6000 since it will be handled a lot.  (hot glue works great too) Allow to dry overnight to be sure.  You can add a magnet to the back if you like. 

The inside pages are color coordinated to the dividers I made from SABOR papers, I allowed a tab to extend beyond the page protectors and covered it with an adhesive plastic sheet for durability.  

Here is a recipe that always gets rave reviews.  Click on it, and save it to your desktop for future use.  It's fairly healthy too.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Get on Over!
