ScrapTiffany Holiday Blog Hop


Welcome to the ScrapTiffany Holiday Blog Hop. We are so excited to share our Holiday Ideas with you on Monday and Tuesday this week. 

You should have arrived here from Laurel's blog. If you arrived here first, head back to the ScrapTiffany blog.

I am so excited to finally share this project with you. Every year around Chirstmas I do some holiday baking. I always make the same line up of treats, but every year I end up hunting around for my recipes. I needed to get them all in one place. I had this box leftover from a mini album project and it was the perfect size for a recipe box.

I used some Pink Paislee and some fabulous music note fabric from a Color Me Daisy kit (no longer available). I added American Crafts Thickers, a splash of paint, a dab of ink, a trip through the sewing machine, some punching and the outside of my box was decorated....


Close up (I told you that fabric was fabulous)...


Backside of box...


The tabbed recipe cards were cut from the Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge...


I typed up the recipes and labels and added a couple of paper strips (Lettering Delights Going Nuts font)...


And what would a recipe be without a yummy picture. On the backside of the recipe card I added a picture, a couple of paper strips and another tab.


Thanks for visiting me for the ScrapTiffany Holiday Blog Hop. 

Leave a comment telling me what your favorite holiday treat is and I will draw a name to receive a box of some scrappy goodies that will include some things I have left from a few past Studio Calico and Mosh Posh kits, as well as some holiday scrappy goodies.

The next stop on the ScrapTiffany Blog Hop tour is Norazah.

And if you get lost here are all the ScrapTiffany ladies to help you get back on track:
