Last year I actually created a gingerbread house to hold a Christmas photo album... pictured below:
Then I remembered that Hobby Lobby sales a smaller version of this paper mache box which would be perfect for my recipe book, so I ran down and purchased one with my 40% coupon... I think it cost me $2.50... what a deal!
So this is the end result...
The recipe book was simply created with two chipboard covers and rings were used to hold the pages together and that will allow many more recipes to be added in the future.

I even got my Wilton pastry bag and frosting tip out to pipe on modeling paste for that frosting look.
Sending you warm Christmas wishes from my craft room to yours ! xoxo Toni
