I made two of these recipe boxes for Christmas this year. One for my Mom and one for my Mother-in-Law. Two years ago my girlfriend Donna made a recipe box like this for our friend Shanna. Donna's turned out so beautiful that I bought two recipe boxes to make my own. As usual they sat in my Scraproom stash pile of things to do. This year I finally got the time to finish them. I used Bo Bunny paper for the whole box. The Bo Bunny line is from a few years ago, I think it was called "Sweet Tooth". The frames are cut using Nestabilities Labels 17. I printed the quotes on my computer on some Very Vanilla cardstock. I am really happy how they turned out, thanks Donna for the great inspiration. Here is a link to Donna's Original Recipe box that inspired mine.

I made these Christmas treats for Rhys' Class. Thanks to my dear co-worker and friend Shawna who very nicely stuffed all the Gumballs into the bags while we worked midnights together.
To make the base of the tag I used the peek-a-boo die cut from Stampin' Up and some Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The reindeer is made from the Owl Punch and some Soft Suede cardstock. I used a snowflake punch and some Early Espresso cardstock to make the antlers. The nose is cut with the 5/8 circle punch and the Cherry Cobbler Glitter paper. On this one I stamp the inside with the "even the naughty deserve something nice stamp" with Cherry Cobbler ink but for Rhys' class I switched to just a simple "Merry Christmas".
