Recipes and traditions find their way onto scrapbook pages as our staff shares treasured family recipes. Produced by Diana McMillen and Faith Berven, scrapbooking by Patricia Anderson, food photographs by Robert Jacobs.
We chose an updated vintage look for our holiday recipe scrapbook design. We created both individual pages that fit into a scrapbook and stand-alone scrapbooking projects. For Senior Food Editor Diana McMillen's scrapbook, we used patterned paper and fabric paper, dressed up with ribbon and buttons sewn right to the page. (To save time, glue the buttons to the pages.)
