Wedding Shower Gift

This is a recipe book that I made for my niece's wedding shower.
It is a "stock their bar" shower. That must mean that they have
everything else that they may need. I included drink recipes and
family favorites.
This is the front and back cover and the inserts with labels for each section.

This is the back of the inserts and covers.

I printed recipes and glued them to decorative paper.

This is the inside of the book showing one the inserts with section label.

This is the inside showing the back of the insert and one of the recipes.

Front cover.

I painted the inserts and covers with acrylic paints, added paper cut outs,
and then went over them with a metallic paint wash.


  1. This is wonderful! I don't drink but this would work for favorite food recipes just as well. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, Mary - that is a beautiful book! You are soooo creative - Cheers!!

  3. I really love this altered recipe booklet! Did you use recycled office files? Or was this a kit?

  4. Hi Cindy,

  5. This is ABSOLUTELY fabulous, what a GREAT GIFT!
