Personalize Your Recipe Box!

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

With so many digital recipe sites I've paired down all of my recipe books to a handful of favorites that include family handed recipes and a few that are not easily located on the web, To house them I bought an unfinished wood recipe box and decided to Personalize it with the theme in my home. I painted it with Acrylics, using my Cricut to cut Vinyl templates for the cutest cartoon characters of ocean creatures and sayings. You can also just paint the background and then create print & cut stickers if you have a Cricut embossing machine!

Enjoy personalizing your own Recipe Box and if you try this project please email me a photo, I'd love to see it!

Note: I use affiliated links in my site, if you click and purchase I do receive a very small commission, this does not increase the price for you but does offset the cost of my blog.
