RECIPE MINI ALBUM

I wanted to share with you my latest recipe mini album.
This I made for Lacee over at Bella Creations.
If you like to make mini albums and like swaps you can join in on all the fun.
This album is made from brown paper lunch bags.
The album is covered with a dish towel with roosters.The little copper pans I found at AC Moore. I used al ot of items from my collection of vintage cooking, baking and advertising ephemera.
I found on the Internet the canning jar images, enlarged and grudged with shoe polish to use as recipe cards. I love these.
I used vintage rick rack on some of the pages. The paper pockets have many surprises.
My collection of baking ephemera was purchased several years ago at a barn sale. All of it was from one women's kitchen.
This woman cut out and saved what seems like every recipe she ran across.
Recipes from side of boxes, recipes from newspapers, recipes from cans, etc. All of it is a great collection to have. Using these cutouts I have tucked into the album hoping Lacee can/will use as recipe cards for her own recipes.
Here is an advertisement for bread, it opens up into many pages.
This is a copy from newspaper on different cuts of meat, dated 1932.Another little booklet about Jello.
This is a page of copies of items.
I also included in the swap two matching dinner napkins.
A different style of blank recipe cards with the same canning jars.
Lots more goodies to share with Lacee.
I didn't want the post to be to long.
This is the back of the album.
Thanks for stopping by.
