Butterfly Recipe Book/Holder

Hello friends,
I do like a butterfly or two..or four! 
Today's book is made with Grand Scallop Squares and matching Nestaboard.
I've gone for something a little different, a recipe holder. I'm hoping you can see from the photo that the book actually has a plastic cover, handy to protect those butterflies and you can wipe it clean.
How did I make it?? From the packaging for your Spellbinders dies! 
Just run it through the Grand Calibur a couple of times and it cuts through - how about that for recycling!
 Inside I've created three recipe pockets and made tabs from Labels Twenty Two -
so far they detail Cookies, Cakes and Puddings - savoury stuff might come later!! 
This will be explained again on the shows but I hope you like all the little previews.
Have a lovely day.

Lovely idea, can't wait for Monday's shows. Thinking of trying the recipe book idea for Christmas presents and a baby book for my nephew's christening. Can feel a shopping spree coming on. Sorry for any typing errors my cat is helping me type!! Sarah W xx
