Sizzix Stamp & Photo Storage Die and Book Binding Die by Eileen Hull

Here's a really fun little gift you can make and it has so many possibilities.  I've made it up as a tiny recipe book but you could just as easily make it into a notebook, a mini album, your imagination is the limit!  I used dies from Eileen Hull's Book Club collection by Sizzix. 

To make the recipe book I cut two pieces of 4" x 6" chipboard for the covers  and used 4" x 6" cut-aparts, trimmed down ever so slightly, from Graphic 45's French Country DCE collection.  You could easily use purchased recipe cards or index cards.   To bind the recipe book, I used the Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die to diecut the binding holes and then used MAMBI binding discs to put it together.  (You can see how to use the binding die and discs in this post with a tutorial)
The box was made with the Stamp & Photo Storage die. 

On the front of the box I used the frame from the Trinket Box & Frame XL die.  I love how all the dies in the Book club collection work together!  
Here's the back of the box and recipe book.  

I put 12 recipe cards in my book and it would probably hold a few more.  Here's a downloadable template for the vertical recipe cards you see above, just print on 8 1/2" x  11" cardstock.  Download here.  (credit to fromoldbooks.org)
