I saw this amazing gift box from Emily and I thought they would be the perfect box to hold some recipe cards!

The box was put together using Xyron double sided tape to ensure that the box doesn’t fall apart.

Paper Smooches - Recipe Box

I used the Hot Spots for the gift box and decorated the front using the stamps Recipe for Success and Bitty Bungalows.

The recipe cards were cut with the Paper die and I finished the project off with some self-made stickers using Kitschy Kitchen stamps and the Xyron Sticker Maker. I love adding stickers to finish off a box set with a unique touch!
