Did you guys all enjoy the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop yesterday? I hope so! I think there's still a wee bit of time to hop and enter to win a prize, so be sure to check out yesterday's post w/ all the links to the hoppers :) I have to apologize for being MIA this week so far w/ commenting-I plan to catch up today-I miss visiting a LOT of you guys! Things have just been crazy this week.
So, today I have a really fun project featuring the September KEY INGREDIENTS, available at Taylored Expressions:
As soon as I saw the GORGEOUS Crate Paper "Restoration" series paper in the KI kit, I knew that muted yellow/green adn splash of pinks, blues would be wonderful for covering/altering my recipe box. I cut the paper according to the dimensions of the box and distressed them all with Antique Linen Distress Ink before adhering w/ Scor Tape.
After covering all of the sides of the box with paper, I added some fun decorative doilies, also included in the Sept KI kit! I think these are so pretty and add SO much to the box :)
Here's a fun view from the side:
I left room for the hinges to still function perfectly in the back and here's another view of the pretty doilie and papers:
Last but not least, I added this rust-colored rick-rack which just so happens to match the tea pot on my counter :) Picking up the yellows from the canisters and the rust from the teapot, I'd say this newly RESTORED box is a welcome addition to my countertop....what do you think?
Be sure to visit the BRAND NEW Key Ingredients BLOG to see more inspiring projects and find out ALL you need to know about this awesome (and TOTALLY affordable) subscription program from Taylored Expressions ;)
I really hope you enjoyed reading about this project today and I'll be using my newly restored Recipe Bo this week to look for some old recipes for "comfort food" from back when DH and I first got married :)
