For my sister's Christmas present, I decided to design and print some recipe cards to include in a recipe box that I will paint.  I also thought it would be a good idea for our familly members to add some recipes in there, written in their own handwriting, because she lives in another city and we don't get to see her much.  I made five different watercolours, scanned them, and had them printed at my university's print shop.  I made two personalised card designs for my sister, one for deserts (she loves to bake) and one for everything else.  I printed off a ton of each of those, then one of my designs for a recipe card from me and each of my parents.
