Collecting Recipes...

My babes and I are involved in a recipe swap - we have to choose a main meal, side dish and a dessert, then send each of them out to 11 other participants. When we get them all back, we can create our very own Sassy Blinging Babe's Recipe book! I came across a neat little box a while back and just knew that I would be able to alter some-how - well, it's going to be the new home of all the recipe cards that I will receive! Here's a before picture:

Yep it's a cupcake box - the white marks were from the tape holding the lid on in the shop. It's slightly larger than the 6x6 sized cards that the recipes will be mounted on, so it's perfect! Here's what the box looks like now:

How cute is that! The swirls around the lid are felt, I added Stickles to the little brown tag for sparkle, I layered 3 flowers and then fastened them with a flower brad. The title is chip-board letters and the pp is slightly shiny (just doesn't show up in the photo). So if I decide to make my recipes into a book, it will still fit in this box - or if I decide to keep them separate I will make some dividers.

Oh and look who loves to smile now - she was smiling at her big sister when this photo was taken.
