Last month in my box of goodies for my design team projects as a Zutter Zister I got this hand dandy Display-it-All stand. I've used one before, making it into a counter to see how many layouts I get done each year (not doing so good this year :( ), but I wanted to see what else this little stand could do. I loved the idea of turning into a recipe book, and knew right away that I wanted to make a cupcake themed one for my SIL Crystal who make the most amazing cupcakes (Reese's cupcake with peanut butter frosting is to die for!!!).
I started off by spray painting the stand as it comes in black, and since the pieces are metal it covered nicely. I found a great set of recipe cards at my local craft store for a few dollars and used those as a template to size the book. After cutting the pages, attatching the recipe cards, cutting out some cute baking themed dies from my Silhouette machine, I got this cute book whipped up in just about two hours. I am really happy with how it turned out and think I may just have to make one for me now!!
