If you didn't get to see Monday's post, take a minute and look back.
Here's the gift we put together for my son's teacher. It's a recipe card box. The box itself is by CTMH and I altered it using paper by 7 Gypsies. The book sitting behind the recipe box was my inspiration. It's a binder in which I keep my recipes and I had some matching recipe cards that I wanted to use for this project. I added some ribbon and metal accents. I believe those metal accents are by EK Success, but it's been a while since I purchased those. I don't store my supplies in their packaging.
Here's a picture of the box filled with cards along with the recipe cards and dividers. I made the dividers using red Stampin' Up card stock and labels punched from the 7 Gypsies cardstock using the Stampin' Up flower petals punch. My son picked out all of greeting cards that filled up the rest of the box.
Here's a picture where you can see the inside of the box and the recipe cards along with the dividers. I used Gaffer tape to reinforce the hinge. The Gaffer tape is also from 7 Gypsies. I used Mod Podge to adhere all of the paper to the box, but I only covered the back of the papers. The outside of the box feels like paper and doesn't have a sheen.
Here's a close up of the inside. I tried to finish off the box nicely on the inside too so it would be enjoyable all the way around.
