Recipe Box Makeover

So a while back my mom found this old Recipe box for me at a store for $1.50.  I could hardly pass it up.  I’ve always loved the idea of a recipe box.  I never write down recipes and then when I want them again its always hard to find them.  Everything was unused in this recipe box so it was perfect!  But I decided I didn’t really like the outside.  As a crafter though I know this can always be changed!  So I decided to decoupage it!  Here is the before!


I don’t think the recipe box was ugly it just really wasn’t my style!  So then I took some maps my mom had brought me and started to decoupage them on.


It was really easy to decoupage this box, and it only took about half an hour!  I forgot to take pictures of the steps because my hands were covered with mod podge.  And this is how my box turned out!



I definitely like the way it turned out and I think it fits me a lot better than the other box!  Thanks for coming by!

  1. ooo really loving the look now! I love the map and the box is the perfect size. I recently re-did my recipe book, but I haven’t posted it yet… so fun! EMily

    • hmmm…truthfully I don’t know what size it is. It might be 5×8 though. That seems about right. I’ve been typing them up and printing them out and putting them on the little inserts that came with the box but card stock is a genius idea!

    • This made me laugh really hard! I would totally get something out of the trash if I found inspiration for it! I’m glad you like it! Never throw out old maps they have so much potential!!

  2. Love when I run into virtual friends on these link up parties (lovelyladieslinky).I am drooling over your recipe box make over! Brings it to a whole other level. almost too nice to tempt with spilling flour all over it – I would be tempted to put my photos in it. lovely. waving ‘hi’ from over at
