A is for...

On CC Swaps I joined an Alphabet Swap where we use a medium, technique or theme using the alphabet A.

For this swap I used one of the pieces of Acrylic pages done on metallic cardstock. I covered a piece of heavy weight cardboard with it. I then took some embossable window plastic and coloured it with alcohol inks. I attached these to the covered cardboard with eyelets  and some thin strips of double-sided foam tape to form pockets.

I then added some little cooking utensils at the top with a plastic piece (from socks) and attached them to the top. I covered some typewriter keys with page pebbles and added them to the bottom pocket to spell out recipes. ( I got the idea for this from Julia Andrus' book but did not use the same techniques). Finally, I wrote out two of my favourite recipes and put them in the pockets.

Very clever! Can you share the recipes with those of us, who aren't lucky enough to get this fabulous recipe card holder????
