Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Recipe Box

Hello friends and Happy Holidays! We are now in the rush of  the holiday season and looking for those last minute gifts to give to our family and friends. I wanted to share this super easy project: A recipe box to hold all of your family recipes made with the Twelve Days of Christmas collection from Graphic 45. I hope that it will give you inspiration to create your own to give out or even to keep one for yourself.

To create my little box I used chipboard as a base. I wanted the box to be of a specific size ( 5 1/2″ x 3″ x 2 1/2″) to be able to hold the Graphic 45 square tags. If you prefer you can easily make your own at any desired size.

I then decorated my box using papers and fuzzy cut images from the collection.

I also wanted to include 3D items to decorate my box. I made Poinsettias out of red cardstock paper and used die cut items like leaves to give my box more texture. I also used a set of mini Pinecones and Berries that I purchased at my local craft store.

The base of my box has a set of four Graphic 45 antique brass claw feet metal embellishments as I wanted to make sure that my box will stand in the kitchen counter.

For the actual recipe cards I used decorated Graphic 45 square tags. I love using tags they are so easy to decorate!

I labeled my tags with the numbers 1 thru 12. I wanted to include 12 recipes to make during Christmas.

I tied different ribbons on the top of the tags to make them more festive.

Here are some of the decorated tags.

Day One:

Day Two:

Day Four:

Day Six:

In the back of the tag I inserted my typed recipes. Do not worry if you don’t have heirloom family recipes.  I also used some of the ones that come in magazines or the ones you can get free at the supermarket. Those will look awesome too!

Giving out a handmade gift is so special. I truly believe that it is not what the gift cost but the attention and love that you put into it.

I hope that you have the most amazing holiday season! I will see you soon with more projects.
