Recipe Box

I was browsing the cuttlebug challenge blog and was inspired by the Recipe Box on there. I just new I needed to make one of these. http://www.cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/

Here is the before picture..


And AFTER! I love it!! "Recipes" is on From My Kitchen cartridge, The font for "Yum" is all mixed up and the background for "Yum" is Storybook cartridge. The cherries are from Paisley cartridge. Everything was sized on my gypsy and cut out from there. I inked the orange paper on the top and the bottom as well as around "yum". I stickled alittle, the cherries I used red and green stickles, for around the top and bottom I used copper stickes. It was very time consuming with all the stickling and waiting for it to dry and the inking but I loved doing it.


Here is a close up of the lid.

The other side..

The tabs for the inside.



Thanks for looking!! :) I look forward to making more of these.
