I was visiting Vicki over at Wizard's Hangout and she linked this amazing project idea and tutorial over at Stampin Inspirations! It's made of just cardstock and patterned paper (plus a piece of sticky-backed velcro to hold it closed! Super easy and super cute. I also like the flower embellishment that Vicki linked to as well, at Wendy Smedley's Blog. This combination was perfect for the recipe card holder!
I used some paper from My Mind's Eye and matted it with green/blue cardstock. I used my Cricut to cut the 2" circles for the flower embellishment (George cartridge). Then I just tied some coordinating ribbon on the handle and inserted the recipe cards.
P.S. They loved them! :)
Thanks for looking!!!
