Thanksgiving Family Recipes
By LeNae Gerig
Designer Tip: When covering the flap and back of the portfolio with paper, fold the flap down to crease before cutting around the edges to insure a proper fit of the paper.
- Apply glue stick to the front flap and back cover of the portfolio. Place brown plaid paper over the flap and back. Trim the paper even with the edges.
- Cover the front of the portfolio with golden yellow leaf paper and trim around the edges. Apply brown ink to the edges of the portfolio.
- Print “Thanksgiving Family Recipes” onto ivory cardstock and glue behind a self-adhesive frame. Trim the paper to fit the frame. Mat the frame onto brown paper and leave a 1/8” border around the frame. Glue the top portion of the frame to the center of the flap.
- Place the cornucopia at the bottom left corner and “harvest” and “feast” tags to the right. Place a pumpkin frame on the center back of the portfolio. Place your collection of family recipes inside and they will be easy to find and share each year.
