A CASE of Sat.

Well as promised here is the gift I made for my cousins shower. Her shower is a room to room shower and each guest was assigned a room. My sister and I both got the pantry. I was kinda bummed at first b/c I was like what can I make cute for a pantry??!?! So of course I went to searching on SCS. My first thought was to make a recipe scrapbook and give some dry items to go along w/some recipes but then I remebered this cute meal planner Taylor made for DD one month. So I guess today will just be a CASE day!LOL! This was really easy to make once I had the right size rings. For those of you that have a fan club memebership for SCS Taylors was featured the month that the theme was food.

To start I took a piece of cardboard (you know like the ones that come w/SU dp) and cut it to 31/2 x 11. Score @ 31/2 and 7 to make a triangle or tent. This is where you will store all your recipes you are not using. Then I took 8 coasters one for everyday of the week and one for the cover and covered them in brocade dp. I sanded and distressed all edges and sponged w/choc chip. My cousins colors are neutral so I thought this paper would be perfect. I printed out the meal and planner on my computer and stamped the baroque in choc chip and punched out w/my scallop.

The other seven coasters are covered, distressed, and sponged also. Each coaster also has a day tab stapled to them. I used velcro for the recipes to attach to the coaster so its easy to change out. I printed out 10 of my fave recipes for her and gave her some blank ones to handwrite her own recipes on. All recipes were printed on the computer. I stamped the baroque swirl in choc chip onto the recipe in the lower right corner. Some of the recipes hang off the edge a tad but not enough that I wanted to redo them!LOL! I'll let you know if it will be a or not. Along w/the meal planner and recipes I have some dry items in the recipes Im giving her.
