As I was scanning the Amber Ink store for something to make for my second project, I spotted some ipaper which really jumped out at me. It is Eat Me, Drink Me-Blue:Tiny. I decided to use this paper to make a recipe box that I could give to Matt with some of his favorite recipes in it. As an added bonus, Amberink sells recipe card digital stamps that I was able to download to use with this recipe box as well. How lucky was I? The recipe cards are called Back to School Recipe Card: Ingredients and Back to School Recipe Card: Directions
Here is the recipe box that I am going to give to Matt.
Now, on to the Recipe Cards to go with the box.
|(The cards were adhered back-to-back after being photographed)|
Aren’t these just perfect to use with the Eat Me, Drink Me paper? I sized them to fit the recipe box and printed them out on white cardstock. The first recipe I wrote up for Matt was his favorite cake that I only make once a year on his birthday. (All of my kids have a different cake that I only make once a year; makes their day very special.) Even grownups like their birthday to be special. Since his cake is a Strawberry Cream Cheese cake, I had to stamp a few strawberries on the recipe card and some other birthday-related stamps to add a little color and interest. I have written up all of his favorite recipes and plan to do the same with all three of kids. My hope is that years from now, they will open up this recipe box and be reminded of some of the “semi-homemade” food I used to cook for them.
Make sure you check out all of the great ipaper, digital and clear stamps available in the Amber Ink Store.
Do you know that this exact project is on my "to do" list for my kiddies!!
I want them to all have recipes for themselves...
all the ones that they've grown up with.
This project is perfect...
And Matt will too!
Oh, this is so cute. Definitely perfect for a man! Masculine, yet functional. :) Great job!
Excellent recipe box! I like it for the plain approach. Cute recipe cards. Thanks for the link to this site.
This recipe box is perfect for a guy.I have planned to do this for my boys for some time now, even bought the boxes, and that is as far as it has gotten. I'm sure your son will love this!
