Hello swappers. I'm a freak for recipes and really love collaged type art and wanted to combine the two. So what I am proposing here is a chunky book. For those that don't know, I've included some links below for your use. The first is a great HOW TO make a book page. The others are some examples of work that others have done.

  1. HOW TO
  2. Examples
  3. Another set of examples
  4. Last set-Flickr

So now that you know how to MAKE a book, let's get on with the details. You will decorate the FRONT and BACK of each page. When the book is open there should be a recipe on either the left or right side. On it's facing page, just add decorations or perhaps a note about why you chose the recipe. The book should include 5 recipes. They can be a theme or maybe different courses for one entire meal, your choice. So you will have 5 recipe pages, plus their facing page and the front and back of the book which will make it 12 total pages.

I'm starting this early and setting the swap date out far to give people time to make the book as well as give them time to check into their partners interests.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I normally will respond within 24 hours. I'm going to make this US only for now. If there are international swappers interested, please PM me and perhaps we can get you set up as well.

Oh and this swap will be 1 partner. I will check all profiles before assigning. Newbies are allowed with at least 2 art/collage type swaps completed. (message me if you have q's). It's no fun if someone flakes or doesn't rate so please be prepared to follow through if you sign up--thanks!

I am interested in this, but I am not sure how you bind these books when they are completed. Did I miss something in the instructions? Thanks for any help you can give!

Craft stores do sell the chunky book now undone & you can paper, paint and embellish them to your hearts content. Can people buy the blank chunky books?
