Mini Recipe Book

The Southern Girls Challenge this month is ‘Circle Shaped Embellies’. I had some vintage style flair in my stash, and I wanted to make a little recipe book for my sister. These flair matched beautifully with some Pink Paisley paper also in my stash. For the cover, I got out a jar shaped die and…

December Daily 2017
