Altered Recipe Box

This recipe box was bought for me by my mum, it's great because it uses index cards and is compact.

I'm slowing transferring all my recipes, which are currently stored in a folder which has seen better days, to the cards.
A few of my recipes including one for Guilt Free Chocolate from my friend Amy!
However I felt compelled to give this little box bit of KD Soul!


I have used some of my favourite dies for this make, the Bakery dies from Noor! Design.  These are so quirky and different.  I have added some Tea Dye Distress Ink to the bread and croissant dies cuts.

The papers are also from the Noor! Design Bakery range.



The images are vintage freebies from Old Design Shop.


I have used Decopatch glue as it's a good strong glue and gives a slight varnish too.  I used an emery board to given a rough texture to the tin to help the glue stick.



Creative Blessings. x
