2.   
Print your photos
Make wallet-size prints of each photo.
Tip: if you don't have a picture of the finished product, print out a family picture that reminds you of the dish. For example, a vacation picture from Maine could accompany your recipe for Blueberry Pie.

Download and print the Recipe Booklet Template. Follow the instructions on the template to glue wallet-size photos and write recipes on the corresponding pages.

Assemble the booklet

5.
