This handmade wooden box showcases adorable blue elephants with small green hearts above their trunks, parading across a white background,with a matching blue solid on the lid's rim. It's the perfect item for a baby boy's shower, to hold 'Wishes for Baby" cards that each guest fills out, and later will be such a cute addition to his nursery. It's large enough to hold many "Baby Wishes" cards, and several mementos as well. It would also be a really fun recipe box in a blue and white kitchen, or for your friend who loves elephants! It's the perfect size to organize all of your recipes, and would also make a great address file, photo box (will store at least 300 of your 4x6 photos) or keepsake box.

This wooden recipe box is completely hand made. It is 1/2" thick, measures 7 ¼” x 4 ½” x 5 ¾” tall, and holds 300-plus 4x6 recipe cards and dividers. It is one solid box that is built to last! In addition, it has a very sturdy hinge that runs almost the full length of the back (shown in the 3rd picture) - this box is meant to be used daily for years. It’s an heirloom quality recipe box that you can pass down to your child or grandchild someday.

*The actual box in the photos is one that I have made and sold in the past. Your box in this style will be custom made for you at the time of purchase; PLEASE SEE SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRONT PAGE FOR CURRENT SHIP TIMES: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAdornedAbode?ref=si_shop * Or just look at the shipping time under the shipping tab above. Let me know if you need it sooner, and depending on my current workload, I may be able to get it out more quickly. *

*I can also make this box with the elephant print on the entire box, without the blue rim (as shown in the last photo). If you prefer this option, let me know in Notes to Seller; if not stated otherwise, I will make it with the blue rim.

*NEW! I am now offering free personalization on all of my boxes! If you would like a name, word, date, etc...added to your box, just let me know in the Notes to Seller and I will be happy to put it on your box in a complimentary color. Let me know if you have a preference as to the color or to the placement (lid top, lid rim, etc...).

On this particular box, I have meticulously hand applied a high quality paper, lightly hand distressed the entire box, and applied multiple coats of both the adhesive sealer, and another type of sealer, to really protect it from smudges and from the heat and steam that is natural in a kitchen (or in a nursery with a humidifier). While it’s not waterproof, it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth when needed. The final sealer I use will not become sticky or tacky over time (this is especially common in humid rooms like kitchens when just a regular adhesive sealant is used).

* I can also make a set of 6 coordinating Dividers for you, sold separately; let me know in Notes to Seller if you would like this, or send me a convo and let me know, and I will set up a Custom Listing for you to purchase.

*the dividers can also be sold in a set of 8 Address Dividers, if you would like to use this set as your wedding guest-book box or as an address file.

Looking for a box in a certain color scheme or style? Check out my other recipe boxes www.etsy.com/shop/TheAdornedAbode?section_id=7692431 or contact/convo me at www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TheAdornedAbode and let me know what you need. I’d love to make a custom one that’s perfect for you!

* Your box will be shipped to you via the USPS; you can choose the shipping method you would like (Priority Mail, etc...) during checkout, and shipping cost is exact.

**Please note: If it's being shipped within the US, and the shipping cost is more than $11.95, I will ship it in a Medium Flat Rate Priority box for $11.95 and refund your difference when I mail the item, as this saves money for my West Coast clients.

* The shipping time (2-3 days for Priority Mail, etc...) indicates the time it takes to arrive to you after it is shipped; it will still take my regular turn around time to make the item and get it in the mail.

*Also, I am happy to ship internationally; it will calculate the exact shipping for my Int'l clients during checkout as well.

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
