Well, I finally finished it in early December!
It was a huge project and something different for me to tackle!
I took my time, thinking each process thoroughly.
I had to stop a couple of times and search/order more paper, embellishments, a ring binder, etc.
But the end result was well worth it!
I purchased the tutorial from Paper Phenomenon - Kathy Orta Files.
She makes her tutorials easy to follow (esp. for beginners like me) and includes pictures. Thanks Kathy!!
I could not enter this into her Contest due to one of her rules was to make a video of your project and I don't do videos.
I tried to get my granddaughter to make a video before it made the trip to Florida, but it never happened!
I am hoping that someday my recipe organizer will make it to one of Kathy's Inspiration Monday posts!
And now without further ado, TADA!!.....
The rooster and sunflowers were fussy cut from the Graphic 45 French Country Collection
Easel style lid to easily hold recipes! When not in use, the lid stays closed with the help of a magnet.
Rooster charm ~ Etsy
Lid & drawer knobs ~ Tim Holtz
Chipboard embellishment ~ Graphic 45 French Country
Metal brads ~ Graphic 45
Recipe dividers & trim ~ Cricut cartridge, "Just Because" Cards
The binder (see below) fits in the left side.
I searched and searched for recipe cards with roosters on them. I finally found just the right ones at an Amish bakery/gift shop while on a mini vacation during the summer!

Recipe binder dividers hold recipes/coupons in place, then can be incorporated to a recipe card if so desired.
Inside binder ~ left pocket
Inside binder ~ right pocket
I left the recipe card dividers and the binder dividers blank. That way Tracy can personalize the categories to her liking!
I am (bashfully) proud of this project and so glad I challenged myself!
Hope you will allow some time in your week to create.
Till next time...
