Okay. . .this is the "menu keeper" but I tend to look through recipe books rather than filing them so . . .I decided the menu keeper makes for a wonderful "photo keeper". .:) To be quite honest, I was initially going to create a mini album with the inserts but didn't have time to complete it so I decided to create the photo keeper instead. This menu keeper has multiple purposes. . .:) It also comes with a stand (see the first photo) for your recipes or photo.
I labeled each of the tabs and added a photo to each of the inserts that can be used for your recipes, behind each tab are photos based on the label. For example, I have one labeled "Mother & Daughter", another is "Alexis" and the last one "Mark & Maria". I made extra inserts for any other photos that I'm going to store.
I created the flower using fabric. What I did was create a baste stitch on a strip of fabric using my sewing machine and gathered one end like you would if you were creating ruffles then I glued the fabric in a circular manner similar to creating paper flowers. I then added beads to the center. I thought a cute butterfly would be perfect for the flower. I created a shabby chic style tag and labeled it "photos". Last but not least, I added a seam binding bow and stuck beaded pins to it.
The other template being released is a "ribbon keeper" There are 2 sizes, regular and large. I used the "regular" sized keeper. As you can see you can store ribbons and there's a slot at the bottom for the ends of the ribbons to be pulled through.
I actually created the box to store my embellishments that's the reason why my box has the label "embellishments" rather than ribbons.
That's it! Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
