Man do I have some seriously fun DIY Christmas projects planned! But, I can’t reveal those until after turkey day, so today I’m sharing my recipe box transformation with you. I was in desperate need of a recipe box, and I spotted this one at Michael’s for $1.00.
Obviously, it’s not my style, but I thought with a little paper and glue, I could spiff it up a bit. I’m still on the hunt for an old-school metal one, but for now, I’m content with my recipe box upgrade. Here’s how it all went down…
Two sheets of paper (color/pattern of your choice)
Recipe Box (can be picked up at Michael’s for $1.00)
1.) Gather supplies, and measure both the top and the bottom dimensions of the recipe box.
3.) Measure the top half of the box and and cut four slits on each corner of the top piece of paper. When gluing on the top part of the paper, the short side of corners will slide into the long side, giving you perfect looking corners.
4.) And that’s really it. No more chickens and red polka dots. You can still see the red on the inside of the box, but that’s our little secret.
And my recipe box now resides in our yellow tray in the kitchen for easy access. It also serves as a good reminder that I have numerous recommended recipes I have yet to try…
Have a happy holiday week. Bring on 4 days off…in a row!
