Drink Recipe Book ~ Recipes

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my Recipe Album for the CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop project!  Greatly appreciated.

I received a few questions as to how I attached the album to the glass.  I no longer have the glass as I used it as a gift, so I can't show pictures, but I'll try to explain.

I took our paper piercer and a lighter and heated up the metal tip of the piercer to get it very hot. Then I worked it through the plastic martini glass to make a hole.  It takes several times of doing this to get the hole big enough to put the ring through.  I did not want to risk cracking the flimsy plastic by using a hole punch or Crop-A-Dile. Although, you could try puting a piece of packing tape on both sides then punch your holes. Theorectically, the tape would stop it from fracturing.

I wrinkled up tissue paper to stuff in the glass.  Then I put a thin line of liquid glass around the rim of the glass and put the back of the recipe album on it. Actually, I probably turned the glass upside down and stuck it to the chipboard cover of the album. Let it dry completely.

For those of you wanting a few recipes, here's a few I have saved from the project.
