Bon Appétit

$0.00

The 7gypsies Photo Display Stand is designed for 4" x 6" photos but it can actually be used many other ways. I decided to create a recipe book. If you don’t want to use the slipcovers that come with the stand you can used the Naked Photo Stand Book instead. I painted all the chipboard tabbed pages from the Naked Photo Stand Book with a dusty blue acrylic paint. I mixed some sky blue paint with Traditional Tan to create a custom dusty blue color. Allow all the chipboard pages to dry and then lightly distress them with the Versacolor Bark ink. I cut out the recipe cards using a light pink cardstock and cut them down to the same size as the naked chipboard pages.

To alter the front cover I cut out a piece of corrugated cardboard and roughly painted it with Gesso. Then I embellished it with some 7gypsies Savannah papers and added a clip art image from the Travel to Paris collage pack. In the upper left corner I added a silver flower brad. I painted the chipboard letters b, o and n the same color as the chipboard pages and glued them on to the cover. Then I stamped the word appétit onto the same pink cardstock that I had used for the recipe inner pages, and then cut out the word and glued it onto the cover also. I added a very thin strip of pink crepe paper to the bottom edge of the corrugated cardboard. I decorated the inner tabbed pages and again used the Savannah paper, Travel to Paris Collage Pack images and the crepe paper.
