Homemade Cookbook

My second cousin is getting married in a few weeks, I got this idea of The Nest this past winter, I loved the idea. And I copied it. I love the way the cookbook turned out so have to share with everyone. I can't wait to make another cookbook! I included all the recipes that Adam and I have enjoyed our first year of marriage.
I found the 3 ring binder at a Ben Franklins while out of town this past weekend.

The paper I found at the dollar sore, hey why pay $5 a pop when you can get it for a buck! I also included a substitutions list in the cookbook as mine has came in handy.
The separators are from Office Max, I wanted to get ones with a place you can store loose recipes, and also with the tabs, these were pretty in-expensive too. I then put all the recipes in a plastic cover so if you spill it wont matter.Lastly this binder has 2 pieces in the back that pop out and then you can prop it up on the counter. I love the idea as my cookbook holder is a pain to get in and out.
This was a VERY fun project, I suggest if you are unsure what to get a newly married couple to try this. It is VERY enjoyable.
