Jellypark - Challenge Reminder and Stocking Stuffer Idea!

Happy Friday, my friends!

I'm back today to share with you a fun little Jellypark project. It fits right in with the month long Christmas Challenge that is going on over at Jellypark Friends. I used the image called "Gingerbread Woman" and you can find it in the Jellypark Shop right HERE.

If you're still looking for some last minute stocking stuffers or gift ideas, this one is ideal. It's so quick and easy and FUN to make. It's a little recipe book! I printed the image on kraft cardstock, colored it up, and cut it out. I used two pieces of medium chipboard measuring 4" X  6". I covered the front and the back in this fun...and most suitable...designer paper. Then I added 24 recipe cards between the covers and bound it with my Bind-It-All. I adhered the fun sentiment on the front, then added some seam binding and rhinestones. 

This would make a lovely gift as it is, especially if some special recipes are added to the cards. It would also be a wonderful addition to a basket of baking goodies; cookie cutters, icing and decorative tips, baking pans, or even a jar of gingerbread mix! :o)


Here's a photo of the stamping I did on the inside.
This one is for one of my girls...but don't tell her! ;o)
