The Fantabulous Supertastic Gift Project 2

Last year it was Roxy's idea to make Bret and Jemaine quilts. Each square inspired by the guys in some way, each made by a different member of the message board.





The whole process from amazing idea to beautiful quilts in Conchord hands is here.

~~~

This year, we thought it would be fun to continue the tradition and do another gift project. An idea from Fallon...

The Conchord Cookbook


A Flighty created book of recipes inspired by Bret and Jemaine FOR Bret and Jemaine, hopefully to be delivered in person during the upcoming European tour.

  • Each person that wants to participate will choose a recipe and construct a page for the cookbook.
  • You can make your page the good old fashioned way, with paper, scissors and glue or you can make it on the computer. Get creative!

    Please note: If you make your page out of paper you will need to scan it as we will be asking you to email them later on.
  • You will need to include, somewhere on your recipe page a photo or drawing of your dish. I hope you're all up for doing some cooking!
~~~


Please read and make sure you understand the instructions so that we can ensure that this will work. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask them in this thread as they will probably end up helping others as well. :)


** CLICK FOR PAGE GUIDE / INSTRUCTIONS **


IMPORTANT: Image resolution needs to be at least 300DPI in order to look good in print. So the finished page should be at least 3,000 pixels wide by 2,400 pixels high.

~~~


Why you'll need to email your pages:

  • When your page is finished you'll be sending it to Katie where she'll use Blurb.com to put all the pages together and create a hardcover book. :)



  • No scanner? Visit Kinkos or any other local office/print shop. (will try to post more resources throughout the course of this)
  • There's even an opportunity to order a copy for yourself.
~~~


The cost (to cover printing and shipping):

[list][*][b:]Blurb - Pricing[/b]

[*]Total cost for 2 - 40 page hardcover 10x8 books will be less than $70 with shipping, so if 15 people participate it will be about $5 per person.

[*]The more people, the cheaper it'll be.

[*]Once we have a final count for participants, an exact amount per person will be given.[/list:u:]

Payment arrangements can me made with Katie, so please feel free to PM her as she is willing to work out whatever payment arrangement will work best for you, depending on where you live. :)

~~~


This post will be continually updated with information so keep on checking back often!

All questions should be directed at Katie, gezyka and myself.

The cut-off date to sign up and show you want to be a part of this is Wednesday, March 31st. So if you're at all interested, let us know and then start thinking about your dish!

Deadline for ALL pages to be finished and sent to Katie is Sunday, April 18th.


C'mon guys, let's make this happen!

I just wanted to say that you don't necessarily NEED to have your recipe idea before you sign up. You can sign up and give us your idea later. Just know that there is the chance that it could be claimed by someone else... so don't wait too too long!

If you need help coming up with a recipe, tell us! I'm sure that together we can come up with lots of ideas. :D

I'm in [image] .

I don't have any brilliant ideas, but when I think of Jemaine, two or three dishes come to my mind:

sandwiches
cake
cheese pie with noodles (but it's more connected with Eagle vs. Shark)

so I guess I'll pick the sandwiches ;D.

OOH OOH ME!!

I'm totally gonna do the nutloaf. [image]


Wait, does this recipe need to be your own creation or can you pick a recipe from somewhere else? My thing is to find a recipe and then modify it a bit to make it taste good to me. :D
