Frosted Designs Friday "Only Patterned Paper" Challenge / Christmas In July - Gift

Recipe Stand Holds 4 x 6 Inch Recipe Cards
When I saw this photo stand, over a year ago, I knew that it would make a perfect recipe card holder and stand.  Extra sleeves can be purchased and it is easy to add them to the stand.  This seemed like the perfect gift for anyone who likes to cook or is just starting out on their cooking journey.  It was fortuitous that Frosted Designs was having a "no cardstock" challenge this week because I need to be pushed out of my cardstock-is-part-of-everything-I-do-zone.

7 Gypsies Photo Stand
The easy to assemble display stand is about a foot tall, so it can sit on the kitchen counter and fits under a cabinet.  I cut three layers of Florentine B & T with the Cricut at varying sizes.  Because of this, the holes do not align.  That did not matter because the other layers covered the holes, except for the top layer.  I strategically placed the "Family" and the crocheted flowers to cover them.  Once all the layers were together, I punched new holes using one of the plastic photo/recipe sleeves to align them properly.

  1. No cardstock? How can that be? This papercrafter has an ongoing affair with cardstock - its the best! Actually I was intrigued with this idea and had fun taking a peek at the challenge over at Frosted Designs. I get it now... Your recipe flip card holder is devine!

    1. Bernadet, I totally agree with you about cardstock! It is so hard for me to do projects that don't use it. Glad you looked over at Frosted Designs. I hope you get a chance to join the challenge! Beverly
