  • bind it all .

  • The book.


Cut 6 pieces of mount board /chipboard 6 cm by 16 cm height.

1.Cover one side of these pieces in the wassail range paper , use the distressed plain side .Then the reverse side in cream cardstock .

2.Using a paint dauber in cream dab around all the sides of each piece. Then ink in brown ink.

3. Using wires that are at least 1 ฝ “ bind the top.


Front cover ,

Using the paint dauber , dab around the chipboard circle. Lightly brush over with your dauber a piece of distressed red paper. Cut this into a circle just a bit bigger than your chipboard circle middle.

Attach circle to the red distressed side of the wassail paper.

Attach your letter stickers to say Recipes in the middle of the circle.

Attach your lace to the top and bottom of the front cover.

Attach the chipboard flourish .

Using a jumbo snowflake ,, ink the edges in brown. (can be one punched out snowflake) attach a chipboard snowflake to the middle and use a brad in the centre.




1st page of each recipe is the name of the recipe . ONLY on the first page I edged with lace.

Then I used a wassail patterned side and a slightly smaller distressed side . I used a paint dauber on all the edges then inked them.

I used stickers to decorate the bottom of the page.

I attached the distressed side to the patterned side – mounting it .

I used a brad in two corners .

I cut out a cream square , and snipped off the corners . I wrote the name of my recipe and attached it to the mounted background.


 Each Recipe page.

Fold your A4 printed recipe in half – then half again – to fit smaller than the page.

I ran some glue ( prick stick or similar ) down the middle of the recipe page – I only glued the length size of my recipe paper.

I then attached some ribbon to the glue – waited for it dry and then placed my folded recipe paper in the middle .

I folded the ribbon over and tied in a lose knot .

I continued in this way on the other five pages.

Wassail Layout

Designed by Maddy Hill

Products used: Basic Grey Wassail Collection

Quick Guide

  • This layout uses two of the Wassail papers on the plain reverse side. Position the papers so that the second is at an angle on the first.

  • Cut up a 12x12 sheet of Wassail Snow Storm following the design (see pictures for guidance)

  • Position your picture then attach the pieces of cut-out Snow Storm to various areas on the layout, securing and embellishing with Wassail Chipboard, Buttons and Brads. I also used some flowers and a little mesh netting and lace here to decorate.  Twist the Snow Storm pieces to intertwine with itself in some places (again see picture for guidance). Don't stick it totally down, instead leave it away from the paper beneath.

  • Note how I have "stacked" various embellishments to give a unique 3-dimensional embellishment.

  • Finish of with Wassail letters for the titles
