Recipe Box

Again, it has been WAY too long since my last post. I feel like I never have time to do what I love the most, creating. I really am going to try to find the time to catch up on my scrapbooking & projects that I have been wanting to work on & keep up with my blog.

Here is a recipe box I recently made for a friend's Bridal Shower. I really love how it came out! I want to make one for myself next! I started with an unfinished wooden recipe box that I purchased at A.C. Moore. I also picked up some pearl white paint & metallic silver spray paint. 

I removed the hinges & the latch from the box & spray painted them silver & set them aside to dry. I then painted the box with 3 coats of pearl white paint. Using the Nana's Kitchen Stack by DCWV I chose a sheet of paper for the top. I cut it out on the Cricut using the "Just Because" Cards cart. I used the duck shift key to get the die cut. I then inked the edges with shimmery blue ink. The "From the Kitchen of" logo was printed out   
on the computer onto pearl white cardstock & cut into an oval shape then inked around the edge in shimmery purple ink.

Blue & Black glitter letter stickers spell out the words on the front of the box. To finish it off, a white ribbon with tiny blue dots & a square blue stone in the center.

For the dividers I used Nana's Kitchen Stack. I don't have the From my Kitchen cart, so I cut them out by hand.
