Slim Recipe card gift Box
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you have some really fun plans for the weekend.
Do you know any newlyweds or new parents? How about a son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter who is moving from home into their new place? If so, why not gift them some of your favorite quick and easy recipes and present them in this box!
I became a great aunt recently. My nephew and his wife just brought a beautiful baby boy into the world, and it got me thinking about when my sons were young…life was extremely hectic! How great would it be to surprise a young couple or a child moving out with some recipes that they can fix quickly to help answer the question…what’s for dinner? Of course, you’ll want a really cool way to present the recipes. That’s where this pretty little slim box comes in.
This box is made from one sheet of cardstock. The top of the box was decorated with a piece of designer series paper, a gift tag with an embossed greeting and pretty flowers and a ribbon to keep the box securely closed. When working up this box I first made a 3″ x 5″ size, but then realized that pre-printed recipe cards are larger so I came up with this box that will easily hold a 4″ x 6″ recipe card. You should be able to fit at least 10+ recipe cards in this box.
This box doesn’t have to just be for recipes, though. Depending on how you decorate the box, would depend on who you are gifting it to. You could make up a matching game on index cards, for example, and gift to a child. Or, another use might be to gift some photos to a friend. The possibilities are endless and one reason why I like these little boxes so much.
Step by step instructions can be found by clicking here. I have also included the cutting and scoring instructions in case you want to make the 3″ x 5″ box. Included at the bottom of the project sheet is a link to my online store if you would like to purchase the supplies to make this project, or you can click on the “Shop with me” button located at the top right of the page.
Have a wonderful weekend!
