  • 3. For inside pages, use page refills for added protection or mount recipe cards onto chipboard pages. Cover inside pages with decorative papers, cardstock, and ribbon as desired. (Note: Use ribbon to hide seams where papers meet.) For ribbon holder, tie ribbon tightly across lower half of page to hold recipe in place.
