Scrapbook Friday - Recipe Page Swap

Hello Everyone, 

Today at My Cricut Craft Room we are showcasing scrapbook recipe pages.  It was supposed to be for Thanksgiving, but I jumped Thanksgiving and made a page for a Christmas Cookie Swap.  

Hopefully everyone will forgive me and use Peanut Butter Cookies anytime of year. 

I started with a 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of Poppy colored card stock.  with it, I was able to cut a 6 X 6 square for the base, a card pocket 3 3/4" X 5 and a tag 3 X 4 3/4.  

For the pocket, I took the 3 3/4" X 5 and scored 3 sides 1/4" and cut the corners at a 45 degree angle. 
Cutting the corner creates a nice fold on the bottom of the pocket. 

I cut the tag from the Art Philosophy cartridge, cut a piece of white card stock to leave an 1/8" all the way around, punch a hole at the top and added some ribbon. 

I used the Baseball cartridge to cut out a bag of peanuts and some extra peanuts.  I cut all three layers of the bag and added one of the peanuts to the opening. There were only three peanuts in the cut, so I cut them twice.  I needed more peanuts.  

So here's the final pocket page. 

I had a lot of fun with it, other than it's not Thanksgiving.  For more great Thanksgiving Recipe page ideas, check out  My Cricut Craft Room.
