so for christmas this year, my best friend requested a recipe box/book since she's getting married in April next year and she can't cook.. except for using the microwave on those quick tv dinners Sad
taking inspiration from this recipe box made for the recipe swap awhile back, l tried to make my own mini kitchen. unfortch mine did not come out as cute, but she still enjoyed it!

onto the pictures!

top view. it's a bit plain, l couldn't find my glue gun so everything is attatched with massive amounts of mod podge! in my excitment to schlack everything together, l forgot to do the smaller details like painting in the stove top or adding little knobs Sad


again pretty plain. the box l found didn't have a latch was extra tall to accomadate recipe cards, and l was too scared to try drawing in a stove window..


home made recipe cards. l bought a whole booklet of retro print cards that l cut down to size, then mod podged with plain paper so l could hand write out the recipe ingredients on the front, and the instructions on the back. l found all of my super easy recipes from the "help! my apartment has a kitchen" book (highly recommended for new chefs)


cute cardstock that l used to make the dividers. l bought really cute fabric that matches to make an apron with, but l ran out of time.. plus my sewing machine is BURIED under all sorts of craft supplies.. so now l think that will be her wedding shower gift Smiley


sample of one of the recipies. haha, she asked me why l mod podged both sides and it was partly so the front and back would match, but another reason would be the easy clean up of the cards! since l figure she'll get grease and what not on them, l don't want them to be ruined too easily. but it was a bit time consuming.. and l did put off the project for too long so l need to work on adding more cards to her box!

thanks for looking!! l had to wait until we finished our gift exchange before posting pics Smiley l also bought her this really cute weekly meal organizer that had retro print paper that was magnetic for the fridge. it was a really good idea, with space to plan out meals and a shopping list that tore off on the side! l should've bought one for myself while l was at it

I like it - too bad you didn't paint on the stove top and knobs, that would have really just been the perfect touch - can you still paint around the pots and pans, add an oven front and knobs to it now?

Oh and I love that you mod podged both sides for easy clean up - that's a great idea!  (plus I have the same obsession with Mod Podge as you Wink)
