The Recipe Lunch Tin

Ok, so this tin has taken quite along time to finish since it was started on March 24th. Over the years I have been collecting recipes from family and friends and I wanted a special place for them. As I make my recipe cards from the SU set What's For Dinner, I'll post them on here to share them with everyone. Can't have the secret to all good things...well maybe a few, but I will share most of my recipes.

Here's the recipe for this tin:
  • SU designer paper Au Chocolat - top piece you will need 2 pieces of 3"x12", bottom piece you will need 2 pieces of 1 3/4"x12" (a little hint: I used the xyron sticker maker to adhere these pieces, I also adhered the top back piece first, then the front top, then the back bottom and the front bottom. By doing this it makes the seams on the sides less noticable.
  • Ribbons: SU Grosgrain, light pink, taupe, chocolate, white, gingham pink and a few non-SU ribbons. The pink around the lid was adhered using Tombo Mono Multi.
  • Paper: SU, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Vellum and Whisper White.
  • There's one piece of Hodge Podge Hardware along the middle ribbon.
  • The word recipe was generated from the computer on vellum then run through the xyron sticker maker. The color of "recipe" is Chocolate Chip using the wonderful printer guide found on SCS.
  • Finally the stamp is a wonderful retired set called What's Brewin'.
  • Final hint I used the templates from for the top of the tin.
Keep coming back to check out some recipes!!!!!

What a great idea! It would be cute to use as a Round Robin thing - but I know you'd never get the tin back! :)
