DINNER ANYONE??

Hi all! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!! Today I am sharing with you the recipe tin and matching inserts that we made in a recent class I taught! We had a great time and everyone loved their new recipe holder. I did realize that after I took the picture, that I had not added all the ribbon to the handle yet, but rest assured the handle cannot be seen for all the ribbon - lol!! I was just too crunched for time to retake the photo! So, I used my favorite fat chef from the Voila stamp set whom I could not resist paper piecing and some of our yummy chipboard as well! It was really fun to make, I am lovin' the papers and the ribbons! Here is a picture of what the card inserts look like. We used the Voila accessories set to do a lot of these as well as the From the Kitchen set for the actual words. I am happy with this class project and think I will teach this one again!! It's fun and makes a fabulous gift (or you can keep it for yourself, heehee!) Here is the recipe! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I have made several tins and love each one. I'm not much of a cook but this would be such a great idea as a wedding gift, or such. Thanks for the idea.
