Best Dishes Cookbook - Bread

Who doesn't love fresh bread?  The way it makes my house smell on a cold day is wonderful.  Unfortunately, we don't get fresh bread very often, but when we do, we sure enjoy it.  I'm hoping this next page divider takes my sister back to that warm feeling of fresh-baked bread.

Back
  1. Cut 2 pieces of card stock from the Nana's Kitchen Stack to 7" X 9.5".  I chose checkered peach and flowered paper for the front of the page.  Coordinating checkered paper was chosen for the back of the page.  Set the checkered paper aside for now.
  2. Cut a piece of black sheer organza ribbon and a piece of the baking specialty ribbon wide enough to go across the page with tails in the back.  Adhere the black ribbon between where the first 2 eyelets will be placed.  Center the baking ribbon over the black ribbon and adhere to the back of the page.
  3. Bread - Using the chart above, cut the bread pieces.  Using your sticker maker and/or adhesive, adhere the pieces together.  Adhere the loaf of bread over the ribbon, towards the right side of the page.  Add the slice of bread at a slight angle below the loaf of bread.
  4. Cut the word "bread" from light brown card stock, following the chart above.  Turn all 3 "Bread" words into stickers and stack on each other to give them added dimension.  Adhere the word to the lower portion of the page.
  5. Apply a liberal amount of adhesive to the checkered paper that was set aside earlier.  Adhere it to the front page.
  6. Tab - Cut a light brown tab following the above chart.  Using your scoreboard and bone folder, score and fold your tab on the center line. Write the word "Bread" on the front of the tab.  Adhere to the bottom of the page.
  7. Eyelets - Color the white eyelets by using the Tim Holtz "Terra Cotta" alcohol ink and applicator tool.  Cut holes and set 3 eyelets in the left hand margin of your page.
