Custom Recipe Box

Recently, I finished making a custom recipe box for a client.  She saw one of the boxes listed on Etsy and requested a similar one.  I started by wrapping the top of the recipe box in a beautiful pastel striped card stock and wrapped the bottom of the box in a mint green card stock that matched the green in the stripes perfectly.  Then I made a variety of flowers in the same colors as the top of the box.  I made the flowers in all different shapes and sizes and accented the flowers with little green leaves.  For the left and right sides of the box, I selected two colors and made some flowers in just those colors and made sure to alternate designs and colors.  On one side, I chose lilac and ivory and made one big flower and accented it with some smaller ones.  On the other side, I chose light blue and pale yellow and made one big blue flower and accented it with smaller yellow ones.  For the top of the recipe box, I made a “statement” flower on one side and smaller ones that wrapped around the top of the box in a backwards “L” shape.  On the front of the box, I positioned the flowers in an “L” shape down one side and a small cluster of flowers on the other.  When I gave the finished product to my client, she absolutely loved the way it came out.  And I have to say that out of all the recipe boxes I have made, I think this one is my favorite.  I love the color palate, the designs, and all the flowers used.  For more pictures and information, please visit Quills4Thrills on Facebook by clicking here or on Etsy by clicking here.
