Best Dishes Cookbook - Casseroles

We're moving right along on our cookbook now.  Casseroles - those one dish wonders that we all have in our lives.  I must admit that I don't make many casseroles because they aren't my husband's favorite.  However, there are some that he likes and I will add those to my book when I get around to making it.  Of course I want a cute page/divider even if there won't be many recipes in the section.  I think this one fits the bill.  Silver stickles and the embossed paper add a little bling to this otherwise simple page.
Supplies:
Adhesives - ATG
Card stock - black, brown, grey, white
DCWV Nana's Kitchen
Dimensional adhesive
Eyelets (3/16")- white flower (3)
Ribbon - Brown with polka dots
Zig black 2-way pen

Tools:
ATG adhesive runner
Cricut
Cricut Cartridges - "From My Kitchen"
Eyelet setter
Paper trimmer
Scoreboard and bone folder
Scissors
Xyron 2.5" sticker maker

Instructions:
The following chart will help with the Cricut cuts.  You will be using "From My Kitchen" 
    Page #     Feature Button          Size          Paper
     34            "tabs"                       3.75"        brown card stock

Front
  1. Cut 2 pieces of card stock from the Nana's Kitchen Stack to 7" X 9.5".  I chose a page that had embossed blue kitchen tools over a light blue background.  Coordinating blue paper was chosen for the back of the page.  Set the coordinating paper aside for now.
  2. Cut a piece of brown polka dot ribbon wide enough to go across the page with tails in the back.  Adhere the ribbon just above where the 3rd eyelet will be placed.
  3. Pot - Using the chart above, cut the pieces of the pot.  Using your sticker maker and/or adhesive, adhere the pieces together.  Cover the pot with silver stickles and set aside to dry.  Once it is dry, adhere the pot to the top of the page using dimensional adhesive.
  4. Cut the word "casseroles" from brown card stock, following the chart above.  Turn all 3 "casseroles" 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 coordinating paper that was set aside earlier.  Adhere it to the front page.
  6. Tab - Cut a brown tab following the above chart.  Using your scoreboard and bone folder, score and fold your tab on the center line. Write the word "Casseroles" on the front of the tab.  Adhere to the top of the page.
  7. Eyelets - Cut holes and set 3 eyelets in the left hand margin of your page.
