A recipe for success

Hi, and welcome to a new week.

It is Karen and Camilla with you this week, and we hope you enjoy seeing what we have done with the 2 gorgeous new collections, as much as we have enjoyed playing with them.

First up, Karen has used the ‘Nan’s favorite’ collection to make this gorgeous and very practical recipe box.  She says,  ‘My daughter has recently moved out of home, to live  on her own. Just like her Mum, she loves to cook, and will often call me to ask me how I make certain things she likes. With this in mind, I decided to make her her own recipe box, with all our family recipes in it. The Nans kitchen papers are a perfect match for her kitchen also. I have used this very handy recipe box from Kaisercraft, and have covered it in the ‘apple pie’  paper to give the box  a wooden appearance, and used the gorgeous red gingham paper on the lid. I have purposely left the box ‘unembellished’ as it has to be practical, and will probably be stored on the kitchen bench, therfore needs to be able to be wiped clean. I have used mod podge to adhere all the papers and embellishments, and also used mod podge as a sealer over the entire, finished box.

The dividers that come with the recipe box are a great idea, I have adhered mine to the inside base of the box, but you can just leave them loose in the box if you would prefer.

The recipe cards which come with the Nans favorites collection fit into the box perfectly, all ready for you to write your favorite recipes onto‘.
