Last week I had a recipe box class. I have wanted to have this class for MONTHS! (literally) I bought some cute recipe boxes at Michael's. The first one I did I used long strips of paper and covered the whole box. It was kind of a pain. So, for my next one and for the class, I painted the boxes white first and then we just cut a paper for each section of the box. This was much easier.
Once the outside was beautiful and embellished we went to work on the section dividers inside the box. I used the Kitchen set from Stampin' Up. For some of the boxes we used round punches for the tabs and for others we used the actaully tab punch. Then on another I used the tag punches.
This was a very fun project and the ladies that came made VERY cute boxes. Here are three more examples. I'm saving one example for tomorrow because it is twist on the recipe box!I loved the idea of a Holiday Recipe Box. I made the paper ric rac using the wavy blade on my paper cutter. I really like how it turned out! BUT, one of the new punches coming out is going to make really cute ric rac too. :)
Jenn's box was bright and I loved her double "r". We had access to a friends Cricut and had fun playing with it.
It really was a fun project and would make a great gift. Email me if you have any questions about the box. I'd be thrilled to answer them!
