Recipe Box

I joined a swap on Two Peas in a Bucket for a recipe box. If any of you have done any recipe card swaps, you know that the recipe cards almost all the time are 6x6 inches. Storing them can be somewhat troublesome. Standard recipe boxes won't fit the cards, shoe boxes aren't that sturdy, and what fun is storing all those beautiful cards in a 6x6 mini album. I couldn't find a 6x6 box to alter so I made my own from heavy duty chipboard and acrylic. My partners kitchen is a Country Chic in Slate Blue and White. So this is what I came up with. You can see inside the box from all sides except the bottom. The lid is attached to the box and just lifts up. Now all I have to do is the category dividers. I'll post pictures of them when I finish them. Future projects I'll be posting will be long envelope mini albums with a "twist", steampunk charms, and one more "rockin" recipe box! Just waiting for my supplies to get in!!!!!
