Recipe Box

When I was home for Easter, my niece was talking about needing to get a recipe box because her recipe collection was growing now that she was out on her own.  I piped up "I can make you one if you want".  We talked colors and styles and I went away to ponder. 

I decided to make my own paper using the emboss resist technique and alcohol inks (I took this with my phone so it looks a little washed out)

Once I got my PTI order, I had my box (I used the egg box) and started to assemble and here it is ...

For the lid I cut a strip of white CS and stamped the border from F0r The Grad, without the "class of".  I stamped RECIPE from Recipe Box Labels in its place.

I also made a set of dividers using the Recipe Box set and the leftovers of the homemade paper.  I also used some Ocean Tides

Thanks for stopping by!
