Yesterday we looked at recipe binders and journals - but what if you prefer a box?
If you want one of the lovely recipe boxes from Laurie at Gifts and Talents, you'll need to wait six weeks - but she promises it's worth that wait! The boxes themselves are handmade, and then they're decoupaged with scrapbooking paper - and then coated with Mod Podge. Each is one of a kind. [photo used with permission]
If you'd prefer a wood recipe box with no embellishment - just some gorgeous wood - you can head over to Winfield Woodworks, which makes boxes in 10 different woods. There's a double-wide box, too.
Rfrantzdesign asks "Why hide your recipe cards when they are so beautiful?" These recipe boxes come with 12 dividers and 75 cards.
OneCanoeTwo also has an open recipe box - the better to show off the letterpress recipe cards. The set includes the box, eight tabs, and 42 cards - and more cards are sold separately. [via Tanna Clark at Complete Organizing Solutions]
And for something very different, look at the recipe box robots from Heavy Metal Milkman. Update on Feb. 24, 2014: I'm not longer finding these recipe boxes on the Heavy Metal Milkman website.
