|Before: Earl Grey tea tin |
After: Super cute recipe box!
Whenever I see a container, I am always thinking about how I can repurpose it. This little box lived under my friends desk for a while because she had the same idea. Luckily, she let me have it and the rest is history. There is hope for hoarders everywhere!

This was a simple project using only paper, a couple stickers, ribbon, and some chipboard for the name tag on the lid. I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the box. (And my handy painter's tape trick I showed you in August) I cut out some pies and stars from the patterned paper. A little ribbon and this all American Recipe box came to life. Luckily my husband has been on a cooking kick, so while I have this handy little box, I haven't had to use it. (Which is fine by me!)
