When baking, sometimes its hard to keep your recipe cards clean and out of the ingredients!  The obvious solution is a recipe holder, but to make it more visually appealing, I designed one in the shape of a giraffe.

The hidden secret is a binder clip glued beneath his head, which lets you clip papers in his "mouth" so he can hold them out of the food.

In this Instructable, I'll walk you through building a giraffe recipe holder, or you can tweak my design to any animal you can think of!

Step 1: Tools and Materials

You will need:

- 22 gauge steel sheet
- 1/8" diameter rivets
- Graph paper
- Acrylic paint
- Binder clip
- Epoxy for metal

- MIG welder (you could use epoxy as a substitute)
- Notcher
- Tin snips
- Ball pein hammer
- Anvil
- Scissors
- Center punch
- Scriber
- Drill with 1/8" bit

OK, I've looked all through this instructable, but I'm not seeing any giraffe recipes. Am I missing something???
Yeah, I misread it too.
What a great project! Thanks.
I see lots of other applications......to hold playing cards for elderly or disabled people and enter it for the &quot;Health by Design Contest&quot;.<br /> How about politicians getting rid of auto-cue all together and use this instead!&nbsp;
Great idea! The first one, that is. But ya know the second one isn't too far off either. :)<br />
This is so cute. I have something similar to this that someone made for me. It is cut out of wood and shaped like a duck, incorporated into the head is a clothes pin.<br />
You should sell these It is so cute!! <br />
Oh so cute and clever!&nbsp; You need to send this in to http://www.onemilliongiraffes.com/<br />
This is a great alternative to having your recipe getting gooped up with your concoction! This is also so stylish! 5/5!
&nbsp;Ever since I made my stuffed giraffe I've kinda been obsessed with them. This is a pretty awesome recipe holder :)
&nbsp;Awww, soo cute!<br /> <br /> *Death by cute-ness*&nbsp;<br />
OMG! This is the cutest little thing ever! Thanks for the 'ible! Great pictures.<br />
