WNY Spring Fest pictures - Recipe Swaps

So for the first time at a swap, I signed up to do the Recipe Swaps. Those who know me, know that I don't particularly like to cook. Therefore, I decided if I ever did sign up for a recipe swap, I would use this recipe that I received in an email from a friend a long time ago.... A swap was born! The outside of the card features an oven door complete with a digital clock that I printed using my computer. The oven mits were clip art that I printed onto dsp and cut out. When you open the card, the chicken from Best of Cluck pops out at you. I did this by using some lightweight wire that came on a spool. I poked the end through the recipe paper and taped over the front with clear tape. I had to do 28 of these! Also pictured are just some of the swaps that I received in return. Thanks for stopping by today and sharing some of my swap experience!
