This is SO cute! I love the idea of giving it as a wedding shower gift with some of your own recipes inside.

Loving this idea! I have a binder of recipes…but it’s not cute! What a great way to make it cute! And I could do this for school binders too! Sweet. Thanks! When you said we could do a transfer…I was thinking I could also cut out letters and do an applique (which is what I have on hand).

That is SO sweet and so pretty! I love the idea of this as a shower gift- how fun! Thanks so much, I’ll be linking.
Love this! I will be making one… and maybe one for each of my Sisters, too. 🙂 Thanks!
Sooo cute! Great gift idea too!
Love the binder! I have a plain recipe binder that I’ve been meaning to dress up. I know you mentioned sharing the “Recipes” image, but I don’t see it anywhere. Thanks for sharing.

So fun to see you here Beverly, and by that I mean really seeing you. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of you before. I love this anthro knock off, although really, it’s a better than version:) I had no idea a spoon would flatten so well, I’d have thought it would be more distorted!
