As of today, my recipes will no longer be stored on Pinterest! Officially, I have finished my recipe box. Since, I love to can and my husband loves to cook, this will be very useful and I love that it didn’t cost much at all to make.

Starting with the supplies…


A wooden box (found at Michael’s), black paint and a brush. I removed all of the hardware before I painted the box. Once the box was painted, I sprayed the gold hardware silver.


My choice in colors was to match my kitchen, but I know some bright and fun colors would add a pop of color to anyone’s kitchen. 🙂

Cut out of HTV, I ironed “Recipes” on with my craft iron.


Sprayed the entire box with clear coat.


Once everything was dried and the hardware was replaced, I started working on cutting out the cards I designed.


The only thing missing are some dividers – still have to cut those out. Only took a couple of hours, mostly waiting for paint to dry, but loving my quick and easy recipe box.
