Hi Everyone – writing to you from chilly Marlborough.
Our grape harvest is almost over and the nights are getting COLD with the frost alarms going off every night this week. There’s snow on them there hills and the heating is well and truly on!
Today I have a recipe box
to show you using the Kaisercraft “Nans Favourites”
Collection – which has been MY favorite collection of theirs this year so far.
I thought the chipboard pieces
from this collection were really fun – so I decided to use them as tabs for my box.
I gave the pieces of the box a light sanding followed by a coat of paint. Usually I give 3 coats of paint for a matt finish but this time I wanted a slightly worn look so I painted once and then sanded the paint to expose some of the raw wood underneath.
These recipe cards which form part of the collection are GORGEOUS! I scanned one on my computer so I could figure out an easy template to print my recipes onto them. I chose a simple font (Courier) and I am really pleased how these turned out.
Here is a close-up of one of the cards – along with a pic of the finished frittata…
I have heaps of more projects using this collection – so stay tuned to the blog for some more ideas!
Please post a comment if you have any questions!
