Christmas Presents!

Hey all! Well, it's close enough to Christmas so I took pictures of one of the Christmas gifts I am giving to some of the ladies in my family. I made this recipe box from scratch...yes from scratch! I got the idea from Marion on YouTube. Click HERE to check it out! She originally designed this box to hold photos but I thought I would turn it into...a recipe box. I found the cutest paper kits at Hobby Lobby. The paper line on used on this box is Mom's Diner designed by Gwen Gunter. I love the colors and the old fashioned look. I'm going to make myself one of these boxes after Christmas! I also used Gwen Gunter's UR Cookin' paper line for another design but sadly I am still working on those so pictures will be yet to come. Anyways, enjoy the pics of this box and try not to spoil the surprise...if you know who this is for!

Okay so these photos got uploaded backwards but I know you'll understand my laziness or should I say my 'I don't have enough time' attitude to fix it right now...lol! Anyways this is the back of the box.

This is the top and front of the box.

This is the inside of the lid and a view of one of the recipe cards that came with the kit. Cute huh?!

This is the front of the box...LOVE IT!

Alright, as soon as I get the other designed box done I will try my very hardest to get pictures up. Until then, Happy Scrappin' and Merry Christmas! SB


  1. Thank you Samantha for the lovely box. What fun to be the one to receive it. And it has several recipes passed on of some favorite goodies, too. I'll have to try them out one of these days when I'm in a cooking frame of mind. You did such a neat and professional looking job in the making of this. I think it's wonderful. Thank you!

  2. I love this box! You have a great blog! I wish I had your talent!

  3. This is really neat, I love the look of it. You made this? It looks like something vintage-inspired you can buy from Hobby lobby. Pretty cool.

  5. Ooooh, what a great gift! I wish I had something like this, and that there was a tradition for recipe cards and boxes here, most Norwegians haven't heard about them at all.
