MFT's Greatest Hits: a la modes

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today the MFT DT is back with our monthly installment of MFT's Greatest Hits! This time we're inking up our favorite a la modes! I chose to work with What's Cooking?, so I made a recipe box for my favorite holiday desserts and treats.

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!


Christmas Come Early Promotion
MFT loves to spoil our customers and this week is no exception. Christmas has come early for YOU. From December 7 though December 9, our MFT Santa will be slipping a little something extra into your "stocking".

We have a ton of gifts under the tree, and we'll pick one out just for you. It could be a stamp set, ribbon, or other crafty product. It'll be a surprise, so please don't send Santa a list. *wink*
