DIY Tutorial: Mother’s Day Recipe Box

Today, we’re using decoupage – one of the most basic skills in the DIY arsenal – to create a charming recipe box perfect for Mother’s Day (or to give as a lovely hostess gift). This project elevates a simple unfinished recipe box available from most any craft store with beautiful decorative paper and a little hardware. Fill it up with matching tabbed dividers and your favorite recipes, or think outside the box (no pun intended) and load it up with cherished photos. – Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue
