Recipes & Family Traditions!

My sister-in-law & I started a tradition of collecting recipes for her daughters when they get married. We send out requests to family and friends that include 4 x 6 recipe cards and ask them to bring their recipes to the bridal shower where we put them in the recipe box and present them to the bride to be. I have created a retro looking recipe box for Shannon using the new Cruzin' papers and the CTMH Recipe Box. The CTMH Bonding Memories glue is perfect for a project like this. It sticks well to the chipboard recipe box and prevents loose edges. You will want to color all of the edges of the box before you adhere the papers. I decided to paint the edges with Create-a-Shade paint that I tinted with Grey Flannel re-inker. This gave a shinny chrome look to the box edges. Be sure to let the paint dry completely before you attach the papers. I used a flower vase on top of a coffee mug to create a stand for drying as you can see here.
