I started with a cardboard recipe box I found in the $1 bin at Michaels. I used several patterns of October Afternoon Modern Homemaker paper -- SO perfect for this project! :) After adhering the paper, I sanded all the edges and inked them with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I love the aged look! I gave the entire box a coat of Mod Podge to protect it, then I adhered the ribbon around the top.
I colored and cut out the image, and I paper pieced her pants. I popped her up on dimensional boosters so the lid can easily open and close behind her head! :)
I made a coordinating recipe card using the Recipe Card Template and Die-namics Notebook Edge Die. I stamped the image on the card with SU! Soft Sky ink.
Now, if I had thought about it before I took the photo, I would have written down a recipe for you. Since I didn't, I'll just point you in the direction of one of my favorite treats to give as a gift during the Christmas season -- Peppermint Bark. It's easy peasy and my kids love it! You can find the recipe HERE!
