Saturday's Workshop - Recipe Box Tutorial

Saturday was a lot of fun and it was a workshop that didn't take all day!  Aren't these recipe boxes absolutely darling!  Well, I am going to include a tutorial on exactly what we did.

Supplies:  Just blooms blossomsTulip Mini-Medley Accents Collection; Waxy Flax; Cherry O Paper Pack (1 sheet of Tulip Cardstock (CS); 1 sheet of Sweet Leaf CS; 2 different B&T papers--I used cherries & stripes); Blush or Sweet Leaf ink; Daubers; 1 My Creations Recipe Box; Bonding Memories Glue.

1.  First cut out all your pieces: 
Cherries:  (2) Front/Back 6" x 4.5"
                (2) Tops (Inside and outside) 6-1/8" x 3.5"
Stripes:    (2) Sides 3-3/8" x 4-3/8"
               (2) Flaps 6-1/8" x 2-1/4"

2.  For the flap, you can trace the pattern on the back of the B&T with a pencil and then cut it out.  Remember that you will cut it down so that the edges will show.
3. With either Sweet Leaf or Blush ink, use a dauber to brush on ink on all corners that will be exposed.

4.  Bonding Memories glue makes a great glue to coat your pieces and glue them to your Recipe Box.


1.  From your Tulip and Sweet Leaf Cardstock, cut 6" x 4" pieces cardstock.  One-half sheet of cardstock will make three dividers.
2.  Cut out divider decorative strip 1.5" x 6".  Cut the mat for the strip 1.75" x 6".  Glue the decorative strip to the mat.  Glue mat 1/2" from top of dividers. 

3.  Create your tabs and glue them to the Dividers

Hope you all enjoy these darling boxes!!
