 I have found this project to be a popular and an easy go-to project – especially for bridal showers and house warmings.  Not to mention it’s a fantastic way to put together all your cherished family recipes into somewhat of a scrapbook mini album format.  I’ve posted this project several times on my blog using different papers but made this particular one for Tattered Lace dies to present at CHA.  The front of the recipe box uses their intricate, gorgeous Heartfelt Tapestry die and the breathtaking pink papers are from Pion Design’s My Precious Daughter collection.  You can find my instructions on how to make the design for this project here.  This link will provide you with the cutting file for the project as well as direct you to my post at the Pion Design link where you can find detailed manual instructions.
I hope everyone has a good week!

Calendar Cube

I have a wonderful project to share with you today.  I designed this calendar cube project specifically for the Pion Design Team so you can find the manual template and tutorial for it on the Pion Design blog here.  Download the WPC cutting file here.  The SVG cutting file can be found here.  The cube measures 3 1/4″ square and has 12 slots, 3 on each side, for each month of the year.  Small shelves inside the cube are positioned to support the calendar inserts.  The cube is decorated with the new Shoreline Treasures blue papers from Pion Design.  Each of the monthly inserts has a calendar on one side, and a gorgeous maritime vintage image from this collection on the other side.  When positioned on the top of the cube, both sides are visible.  I think this would make an excellent handmade gift and one that would be treasured.  Although it was designed to function as a unique calendar, you could also use it for recipes, photos, Bible verses, schedules, etc.

The inserts were made using a Spellbinders die made longer than the insert to stop the insert at the edge of the slot when inserted.  Here is a photo of the cube without decoration:
