Americana recipe box

Today I would like to share a recipe box that I made for my husband's secretary that is retiring.  Today is her last day, so I needed to get this one done before he left this morning!  I think I went to bed around 2:30am.  But, I finished it!  I would have gotten it done earlier, but I took my grandmother to meet my uncle, w/ my parents yesterday afternoon.  So, the rest of my day was spent on the road!  So, I'm not complaining that I was up that late!

Anyway, so this secretary is very much into Americana type stuff. Since I'm not really into that, I don't have a whole lot to choose from, craft wise. So, I really had to use my imagination on this box! And try to remember what I've seen at antique stores and such.

This is the whole box.

This is the front.  The heart is really hemp twine and punched out holes.  I cut out a circle w/ my nesties w/ a piece of acetate and adhered the stars.  All the stars featured are from Ornaments and Stars by Kitchen Sink Stamps.  The dog is also from Kitchen Sink Stamps, Kittens and Pup.  I created my own fence.  The grass is felt and die cut from MFT Die-namics!

This is the top of the box.  The letters that spell out recipes are from the Stars nesties.  The cardinal is from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Here is the inside!  The words are from Recipe Fun by Fiskars.

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!!!
