Family Recipes — By Tessa Bundy

Designer Tip: Store or share your family’s favorite recipes with this sparkling portfolio.



  1. Cover the bottom 1 1/4" of the portfolio’s front flap (the edge with the rounded corners) with burgundy paper. Cover the rest of the front flap with flourish stripe paper so the stripes run vertically.
  2. Mat a 2 1/4"x3" photo on blue texture paper and trim to 1/8". Glue the photo centered on the striped portion of the portfolio front. Add a rhinestone star burst to the top left corner of the photo.
  3. Add the rhinestone flourish to the burgundy portion of the portfolio front. Foam tape the circular “fun times” cut-out in the center of the flourish.
  4. Cover the inside back of the portfolio with floral paper. Mat a photo on blue texture paper and trim to 1/8". Glue the photo to the floral paper.
  5. Fold in the portfolio’s side flaps. Attach a tag to each flap using pewter mini brads.
  6. Fold up the portfolio’s bottom flap and glue it to the side flaps.
  7. Mat the top edge of a 6 1/2"x2" strip of striped paper on burgundy paper. Trim the mat to 1/2". Attach a label to the papers with two green mini brads. Glue the striped paper even with the bottom edge of the portfolio’s bottom flap.
  8. Write recipes on recipe cards and tuck inside the portfolio pocket.
