Use Rocks for Recipe Card

I found this pizza slice shaped rock in the backyard and of course I couldn't resist. I brought it in, I cleaned it, and wrote a pizza crust recipe on it. I put clear tape over the top and now I have a recipe that won't blow away. It will be cute to put in a little basket with some more recipes as soon as I find more unusual rocks, such as a perfectly round one for pancakes. I didn't spray clear coat on there because it smears the Sharpie pen.

I love being creative. This is an early Christmas present for me. I will get a small basket at the dollar store and waterproof the bottom for the kitchen somehow, then keep them there.

That's really a great idea!I love rocks & this is a neat new idea I can't wait to try-but why did you put tape on it instead of a clear-coat finish?

This is such a fun craft. I might even try writing recipes on shells.

Thanks for sharing!

I dont do crafts too well, and I had some old tape to recycle. I am not sure why but the last time I did the clear coat thing, it smeared the paint! Not sure if it was operator error or the paint I used!
