This recipe box was supposed to be done for a Christmas present, but with my life being so crazy, it kept moving to the back of the list. Until this weekend! My friends and I got together to stamp on Sunday, and I brought this recipe box to work on. I completed the front before I had to go home. And yesterday and today I finished the rest of it! Hopefully I can give it to my friend soon! Then it will truly be off of my to do list!
I used Lost & Found paper by My Mind's Eye. I LOVE this paper! It's SO fun to work with! Lots of glitter which only adds awesome details, and lots of inspiration from these lovely pages!
I used a stencil in some of the corners that I purchased from Swirlydoos.com. They have some awesome stuff there!
The pennant sign on top spelling out Recipes is from My Favorite Things. I stitched french knots on each one, as well as on either side of each tag on the inside. Total, I made 43 french knots! By the end, I FINALLY got it! That's a fun little detail when you get it knotted right! I watched a youtube video to learn how to make one.
I bought a bunch of pearl shoots that I was going to use in my cousin's wedding card box, but they ended up not being used. I thought that they would be a fun little touch! When I look at the top of the box, it looks like there's a sun w/ clouds, and it's raining pearls! LOL!
For the tabs inside, I used Labels 4.
I hope my friend likes it! If not, I'm totally keeping this one! And I don't even like birds!!! LOL!
