First, excuse the office supplies in the background of the picture :) I'm a big fan of my wrapping matching the gift that's in it, whether it's a bag or wrapping paper. I've been known to stamp my own wrapping paper. But, I think decorating a plain kraft bag is a lot easier.
Here's the contents of the box:There are inserts for different kinds of dishes (desserts, pastas & sauces, entrees, appetizers, salads & sides, and soups & stews). Then I used PTI's pre-printed recipe cards, and stamped a design on the top of them in a coordinating color. You can also see the box and the lid in the background. Papertrey makes some really fantastic products for making these types of gifts - the stamps are from their Recipe Box set. The box itself is one of their egg boxes.
Wouldn't this make a cute gift for a wedding shower? Maybe even Mother's Day or Grandparents' Day? You could definitely make it a more masculine and include some BBQ recipes and grilling tools for a Father's Day gift. I'm sure I'll be making more of these over the coming year!Have a fantastic Wednesday!
