Hump Day! Recipe Holder



Happy Hump Day! Yikes, with Christmas so close I'm not sure if I'm excited that the week is halfway over or if I'm freaking out because there is so much to do and time is slipping by way too fast. Today I'm going to share a super easy Christmas gift that I made for a sweet friend.What I love about this gift is that it's perfect for Christmas, but it is also usable all throughout the year. Check it out... a cute little recipe holder for the kitchen.


I picked up a wooden block and tin set from a Pick Your Plum deal way back in the spring intending to find some way to use them for Mother's Day. That time obviously came and went and when I found the box of goodies on the back of my craft shelf I decided they would make perfect recipe holders. They are just the right size to sit on the counter and if you are like me, you find yourself looking for your recipe the whole time you are cooking because you are constantly moving it out of the way as you make a mess in the kitchen. Anyone or is that just me?! Well, problem solved. With the recipe clipped on this baby, my sweet friend will never lose a recipe again.


Totally thought this little bird was so adorable. This is an older Christmas line from Imaginisce that I had in my scrappy stash. So cute. After painting the wooden block I glued some scrap paper and  added the Love sign and the bird to give the block a cuter look.


At this point you may be wondering how this cute little holder fits in the kitchen the whole year round. Let me show you!


Here's a look at the back side. Just flip it around and you have a cute little holder for the rest of the year, yummy little cupcake and all. Again I dug into my stash and brought out another very old line. This time it's Bo Bunny. Can you tell that I'm a paper hoarder? I have had this paper for so long and have been waiting for the perfect food page, it just never came until now. See, there is good that comes from hoarding! (Try convincing my sweet hubby of that.)

Thanks for sticking with me today. I would love for you to visit my blog and let me know what you think. Have a super scrappy day!

Thanks for stopping by today!
