Country cookin recipe box

Good Friday morning all , My Daughter has been asking me for a recipe box for a while now and I come across this nice box @ Moms Memories brought it home and started on it right
It is another Kaisercraft they have so many nice things to make, I had to put it together and let me tell you this one was a lot easier than the advent calendar.
I first painted it black ( she likes country too haha) used graphic 45 papers inked the edges
covered everything inside and out with the papers....
Used lace / sm rosettes/buttons and bows.....
Cricut cart Country Life for all the cuts inked them and doodled of course....
used a corner punch and added that to the corners.
Had to add a cow to the front as she is a huge cow
I was just gonna at decorative paper on the inside of the lid then I thought it would be a useful to add the measurement conversion chart. This was a fun easy project and I am really happy with the way it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend

Martha Stewart branch punch for the fronts of the drawers every other one..
The numbers I painted black they come with the kit.

I used paper and folded it and made a box behind the tree to make it 3D.
Cricut cartridge Christmas cheer for the fire place also added branch punch on the mantel and folded box behind it also.....
The title came from cricut cart Winter woodland and plantin school I mixed and matched ...
For the top I used gingham ribbon that I a bell some greenery and some sm bows .... I choose these colors because I love country and they are the traditional colors reds,greens. Well I hope I have given you some inspiration and I hope you stop by SOUS for lots more....thanks for stopping by
