Dear Creatives, We are getting into the time of year where we are looking up recipes & having to keep track of favorites. I know many of us keep track online with sites such as delicious or even within a site such as FoodNetwork, but what if you just want a good old fashioned way of tracking recipes & even having some pre-written recipes to pull out & share with others at the holidays?

How about a lunch box decorated & used as a recipe box? Hello kitchen here we come! Yes, I am excited to hunt down the supplies to create this lovely vintage inspired recipe box. I would love to have a decorated recipe box in my kitchen. Wouldn’t you?

I can even see making some as gifts with a few recipes in them! For baking season how about a holiday inspired recipe box? Look at all these cute index & recipe cards Vicki made.
