 Hi everyone! I recently got really into scrapbooking and I'm now searching for new ways to scrapbook. So the idea that came to mind was to make a recipe book, with pictures and recipes. My initial idea was to buy an ordinary scrapbook album, but I wanted to know if anyone here would have a better idea! I would like to use plastic page protectors, since chances are the book will most probably be in contact with liquid/sticky/oily substances frequently, but other than that I don't have any constraints.

  Thanks ahead for your ideas!!!

Recepie scrap books are so much fun!! laminating is a good idea, all my friends have used just regular scrapbooks and they work fine for them they still wipe off if they get oil or anything on them...good luck would love to see results once you're finished

Wal-Mart has plain small scrapbooks - you can decorate them yourself according to whatever theme you are working on. I can't remember if they come with page protectors or not. You could also use a spiral sketch pad ....the pages are thick and should hold up with embellishments. Good luck!

I wanna craft, craft, craft, til I just can't craft no more...

the only thing i would recommend to you is using a three-ring binder type of book.  photo scrapooks don't lay flat and you could lose your page while your measuring the sugar.  that could be a pain.

I like the three ring binder idea! That way I could add recipes whenever I wanted. But I do have a question, is laminating very expensive? Because I would be doing more than just a few pages...

 Thanks everyone for the great ideas  Smiley

I just posted a similar question!   Cheesy  A friend of mine used a $1 store photo album and inserted each recipe card....  I was also looking for a more creative way of doing this.  I think it is a great Christmas gift idea!!

You can get the roll of laminating paper for between 5 and 10 dollars and i believe there's 100 I forget if its feet or yards...Its easy to work with and has grid lines on the paper its stuck to to help measure Smiley Good luck and keep us posted especially if you finish it!!!

Right now I'm in the process of typing up all the recipes! I have soo many Tongue But I think I might print a few of them out first and then I'll decorate them and laminate. What I wanted to do is make every recipe and take a photo of it, like a polaroid. but that would be so long to do that!

 I have a new question! I always figured I'd print the recipes on plain white paper, but maybe I should use something more rigid? and maybe something nicer looking too.if I use thicker paper will it still work in my printer? I have a laser printer I think.

Thanks a lot everyone for your great ideas!
