Another Recipe Box

I made this recipe box for my daughter and soon to be son-in-law. I used the tutorial found here. Their kitchen colors are going to be black, white and red. I used Damask Designs to make the patterned paper. I am totally in love with this set. It is the best Damask set ever. I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the inside. You can refer to my post here to see the other recipe box I made. I made these recipe dividers with black cardstock and the tabs were stamped in red and matted on red circles.

I painted the clothespin from AC Moore with black acrylic paint and then modpodged the paper onto it. I finished it off by tying a cute red ribbon around it.

Supplies

Stamps-Damask Designs, Recipe Box, Recipe Box Label (Papertrey)
Ink-True Black, Pure Poppy (Papertrey)
Paper-White, True Black, Pure Poppy, 2008 Bitty Dot Basics True Black (Papertrey)
Other- Black saddle stitched ribbon (Papertrey), curved rectangles nestibilities, mod podge, black acrylic paint, red grosgrain ribbon (Papertrey)


Well, the wedding is next Saturday. I will be sharing pictures soon of the things I have been doing that have kept me away from my blog. I am finishing up on the programs. I wanted to wait and make sure there were no last minute changes. The table cards are finished, they look really nice. I am just waiting for my daughter to finalize the seating chart so I can make the place cards and I think I will be able to start to relax a little bit.

Thanks for visiting my blog and being so patient with me while I wade through all of the wedding stuff. I am really looking forward to getting back to making the fun stuff, although I have really enjoyed making the things for my daughter's wedding and consider it a real honor that she asked me to do it.

Have a blessed day!
