If you are anything like me you need a recipe to bake and this time of the year I like to try new recipes.
The last time I made a recipe I think I ‘lost’ it two or three times while making it.
For some reason I kept putting other things of top of my recipe.
Then I remembered that I’ve seen a few recipe holders, most recently this great one from Caroline at Spaghetti Chic.
I won’t be loosing a recipe now that I’ve made my own recipe holder.
I started with a 5 x 7 frames that I painted and slightly distressed. The distressing is perfect for a frame on the kitchen counter – a great way to hide splashes and any stains before they are cleaned up.
I inserted some metal flashing that just happens to come in a size perfect for most 5 x 7 frames. For this frame I had to trim off about 1/8” on two sides.
I stacked a few buttons and attached a magnet to the back.
This frame can be horizontal or vertical if you want to hang up two recipes.
I thought I would share a close up of the Noel letter behind the recipe holder.
It was gift from one of my sisters about 5 years ago.
I get it out every year and put it somewhere.
Look at all the paint splattering that is on it.
I love it.
Now if only my counter was this clean all of the time.
Thanks for stopping by.

saw you on tatertots and jello- oh. my. goodness- this is brilliant!! i'm always trying to find a place to post the recipe I'm using at the moment so that it's not on the counter getting splatters all over it, and this is just THE perfect idea!! now I need to go make one for myself ;) thanks for the inspiration :DReplyDelete
