A Sweet Gift for Someone Special

Today, I am sharing a little gift I made for one of my little sisters (but it could easily be given to a female friend, teacher, co-worker...). I made a little recipe box for holiday sweets and treats, using Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Recipe Cards and Folio SVG setand the Recipe Digital Stamp Set
And, today only- EVERYTHING is on sale:The SVG set made it so quick and easy- they cut like butter!I used some pretty Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses double-sided patterned paper, pink cardstock for the recipe cards, and printed the "From My Kitchen-From My Heart" digital stamp out 4 times at 1 3/4 inches, punched them out w/ my circle punch, glued them to the tabbed recipe dividers, then inked all away around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Tattered Rose.I tied some shabby seam binding ribbon around the box, added a chipboard snowflake, a beaded vintage hat pin, and some yummy Prima goodies-a pink pearl swirl(or actually, part of a swirl that I had left from another project), and a fabric flower. Viola-a great gift for a special lady! All I have left to do is add some of my favorite holiday sweet treat recipes! And,the details really do make the difference and make it special! I will have a hard time giving it up, I think!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and letting me share with you! I hope I have inspired you to get out your crafty supplies and make something-for yourself or someone else.
I am linking up to these challenges:


Whew-that was a bunch! Thanks for sticking with me! Now, head over to Lindsay and the other designers' blogs for lots more Sweet Treats and a Freebie!!
