recipe card

For Bao's Thanksgiving class party, the kids made a turkey recipe holder that featured the most delicious recipe: Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes by Paula Deen.

The recipe card was designed and then printed on sticky label paper on my laserjet printer. For a little pizazz, I purchased a pack of patterned card stock at Michael's and adhered the recipe to the card stock for a double-sided effect. The cards were laminated for durability.

A craft station was set up for the kids with materials to build their own holder: mini terracotta pots stuffed with styrofoam squares, popsicle sticks, silk leaves, glue dots, clothespins, and premade paper turkeys.

I baked a batch of the butter cakes and brought them along so the kids could taste them.

They were a hit!
