A paper crafted way of sharing a trio of Southwest recipes perfect for a themed party. The nuts and dip mix are great for favors! My project includes an 8x8 recipe scrapbook page for Southwest Soup, a bag topper for a dip mix packet with recipe card for Southwestern Dip, and a decorated nut cup with recipe card for Southwest Spiced Nuts.
