I am a huge fan of Walnut Hollow! They have beautiful wooden surfaces to decoupage and paint, like the recipe box I used here. This Basswood box is ready to use and made in the USA using sustainable wood.
I used Tombow’s Aqua Liquid Glue to cover the box with beautiful papers from the Burlap & Bouquets Collection from Fancy Pants Designs. The Aqua works extremely well for decoupaging paper onto wood. I simply cut the paper to size and then use the broad applicator to attach the papers for a smooth, wrinkle free bond. Talk about mess free, no brushes to wash! When dry, I use the Aqua to give the surfaces an all-over brushing. It dries clear and matte! The flowers motifs from the Burlap & Bouquets collection on the top of the box were applied the same way. COOK, EAT and BAKE using large alpha stickers from the collection were added when dry. I also added a washi tape edge around the box rim for added embellishment. Don’t forget the final touches inside the box; recipe card dividers and a label with ‘FAMILY FAVORITES’ on the lid.
I used a Power Tab to attach a clothespin to the lid for a handy recipe holder!
