Spicin’ Up the Recipe Box

I decided to do a little redecorating of a recipe box I received from my sister as part of a bridal shower gift. The size is perfect to fit by 4×6 and 3×5 index and recipe cards so I didn’t want to throw it away – just add some color.


I started my project by wiping down the tin container and applying Mod Podge to it. I then applied a layer of pink tissue paper to serve as my background color.

I then started applying pieces of scrapbooking and cardstock paper I had cut up into preferred sizes.After placing the paper where I wanted to on the tin I applied another coat of Mod Podge with a sponge.

I’m very excited for finished product. The colors don’t necessarily go with my kitchen decor, however it will encourage me to get out a recipe and bake or cook. How can I resist opening such a cute little box?
