Today I'm sharing another make for my friend's bridal shower. (If you're just tuning in, I also made a kitchen wall art piece and a doily and coasters set.) In the invites that we sent out, we included a 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch recipe card for people to fill out and bring to the shower! So we needed something to collect all the cards. Here's where I enlisted the help of my dad.
I drew out some sketches, came up with some dimensions, and my dad brought the sketches to life with this beautiful mahogany and maple recipe box! I finished it with some sanding sealer and three coats of polycrylic so we could keep the natural colors of the wood!
I made the recipe card dividers from bright colored card stock to match the invites and the decoration colors.
And here's a shot of it in action at the shower with some recipes in it! I think it turned out great!
I have some decoration makes from the kitchen themed shower I can show you another time. I don't want to brag or anything, but this group of bridesmaids is pretty darn crafty!
