This weekend I decided to give my recipes a new home.
My recipe box contains a few great family recipes with the handwriting faded, some cut from old magazines and newspapers. It's fun to go through them! It's like sorting through old memories.
Although a little outdated and beat up, my recipe box is very special to me. I've had it for years, it just needed a little makeover.
I began with a couple of wallpaper samples from Serena & Lily, cut to size. (Thanks again, Caitlin!) I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the box after painting the lid and trim with paint.
Then I added an adhesive metal bookplate from Staples, on one side.
I used my printer to create the recipe label.
There are a lot of ways to manage your recipes online, but I love the traditional way of storing my recipes in a box tucked in the cabinet. Why do I feel like I was born in the wrong era?!
How do you store your recipes? Do you keep them fresh in your head or pinned to your Pinterest boards?
