What's Inside Your Card -Cuttlebug Spot #39 and A Recipe Book

A new week, a new challenge...this week at The Cuttlebug Spot we want to see the inside of your cards. I decided to do a baby girl card. I have no purpose for it right now, but I had these scraps I wanted to use up.

Inside of the card:
Next here, is a recipe card book I made from recycled cereal boxes. I'm a huge fan of using recycled items when doing my scrapping, and there isn't a box that ever sees the garbage can in my house ( I have two milk crates full of boxes to cut up)! I've been thinking about this project for awhile now, and just finally sat down over the weekend to put it together -- I got tired of looking at the stack of recipe cards from the swaps I've been in. This album is 7" x 8". I also cut 8 1/2" x 11" page protectors to a 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" I cut the side with the opening first, then cut the bottom off. To reclose the bottom I just stapled along the the of the page protector. Not the prettiest, but I was afraid if I glued it then my cards would stick inside it and I wouldn't be able to take them out.

Here are some pics for ya:

Lastly, I am please to tell you that we have reached our goal of 1,000 followers at The Cuttlebug Spot. Nilda will be announcing the winner on July 20th. I know it's a nail bitter waiting that long, but get thinking about how you'd spend that $1,000.
