Recipe Book Box card

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

Hope you are all looking forward to Christmas's nearly here Whoop Whoop. I saw a post and thought what a fantastic idea that would go with using the Christmas doohickey club dies . 

I have added this bookplate using more of the designer papers inside with some string pearls around and graphic 45 brads at either side . Underneath there is some cheesecloth for texture and hanging are some mini bells and trumpet charm on some coats thick thread.

I have started with papermill linen card for the base and then added these stunningdesigner papers from Live & Love crafts with some blue shabby embossing powder.

I have used the papers for the dies and added some pearl brads and diamantes.

I have added some beautiful pearl button lace and made a little scroll from paper and distressed with ink and finally added a prima embellishment , pine cone and pearl pin

the tap embellishment is from prima and the rolling pin from my bloggy friend 

Here I have added some wooden cutlery from my local craft shop and bottle cap from LLC finished with some miniature bells .

The inside has been decorated with lace and more of the beautiful papers 

and a magnolia doohickey snowflake die

I made recipe cards to pull out at each side

Finally I added a pocket inside with Magnolia doohickey teal labels and jolly tag and decorated the front with Magnolia doohickey bow die and some mini pom pom trim.

I hope  like my recipe box I had so much fun making it especially
 with all these inspirational products . 
The wonderful tutorial for this box can be found here if you fancy making one .
