Criss Cross Christmas Recipe Holder

Christmas Criss Cross Card

 Paper Hoarders Beware.  Here's a project worthy of your coveted Designer Paper.  Criss Cross Recipe Holders are the perfect solution for handing down heirloom recipes. This is a project that's worthy of your beautiful Deck the Halls Designer Paper.

With just one sheet of Deck the Halls Designer Paper I was able to fashion a Criss Cross Holder, 2 Recipe cards and labels.  There is even some left over.  What a great 3-D Projects highlighting both sides of your beautiful paper!

Recipe Card

Beware this is a recipe that was passed down from my Great Grandmother.  Recipes aren't quite so vague these days.  The recipe should read 1 or 2 packages of dates, instead of 1 or 2 cups.

Recipe Card How To's:

First Stamp your recipe card using your From the Kitchen of stamp and Always Artichoke ink onto Deck the Halls Designer Paper. For a better image with such a large stamp, lay stamp on its "back" and ink.  

Next, lay designer paper on inked stamp, then rub with fingers, bone folder or brayer for even coverage.  Trim and add recipe using Cherry Cobbler Marker.

Recipe Card

This part of the recipe really makes me chuckle.  Add enough flour to make soft dough.

The labels were punched with the 1" Circle Punch and the 1-1/4" Circle Punch.  The back side of the recipe cards are a beautiful Cherry Cobbler pattern.
