wrap with scraps part 2

After spending many hours searching on pintrest for cute card ideas I decide to go a slightly nontraditional route and make my own using yet again scraps from my craft box. I have always wanted to use cookbook pages for something and a holiday card seemed fit. I used the above battered and not first edition of The American Woman's Cook Book. There are not many pictures and the recipes leave something to be desired so I designated it as a craft book....
Using a blank card stock card I covered the front with the recipe page and trimmed to fit. I then quartered a doily (this beauty was from Micheals) and carefully glued it on. These look quite nice in person and I am pleased with how they turned out. How many more ways will I be able to use doilies this year...
