I remember my mom’s recipe box. It was a vintage old 70’s floral metal box. I loved looking through it. Even when I was little and I couldn’t cook. My mother has the most beautiful handwriting. It is really artwork. Isn’t it ashamed we don’t teach that in school anymore?!?! Her recipe cards are really quite beautiful. I wanted to create something with them….
So I copied some of her cards (so that I didn’t have to cut up the originals)
I also used some of my Grammie’s recipes…and Bill’s Grandmothers…that she had given to me. I cut them up with pinking sheers into squares.
Using some rubber cement I glued the pieces to a paper-mache box. Random placement–think mosiac….
After the box was covered I put a coat of triple thick sealant on the box.
I also added a couple of rows of ribbon.
I love how is turned out! A great way to display some recipes of the past :)
