** This is the LAST ONE I can make in this pattern; the paper has been long discontinued, and I only have enough left to make this box and divider set one more time. When it's purchased and made, that will be it! If you love it, act fast! :)

Aqua and red is one of my favorite color combos, so I fell in love with these prints and just had to make a box with this paper! Delicate little red wildflowers inside of little white scalloped circles are scattered neatly on a light aqua blue background with white X shapes between them; the rim of the lid is covered in thin aqua and white stripes. It's very retro in feel, and is reminiscent of 1950's wallpaper or fabric. This lovely box will add a stylish touch of the 'good old days' to any kitchen, and is just perfect for organizing your recipe cards - or will make addressing thank you notes and holiday cards even more fun if used as an address file box!

It's a large box and will organize at least 300 of your 4x6 (or 3x5) recipe cards and dividers, photos, or address cards perfectly. It's also beautiful when used simply as a keepsake box, and makes a very special wedding or shower gift. (If it’s for a shower, why not send a blank 4x6 card to each invitee and have them bring it to the shower with their favorite recipe written on it? Then give this box to the new bride along with a start on her recipe collection!).

* The actual box in these photos is one that I have previously made and sold. Yours will be CUSTOM MADE for you at time of purchase, and will be ready to ship within 2 WEEKS AFTER IT IS BOUGHT. (If you need it sooner, let me know, and depending on my current work load, I may be able to do that for you).*

This large wooden recipe box is completely hand made. It is 1/2" thick and measures 7 ¼” x 4 ½” x 5 ¾” tall; 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) - it 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 entire bottom of the box and the top of the lid is covered in a beautiful retro floral pattern; pretty little wildflowers in a bright cherry red shade with green stems and leaves are pictured on white scalloped circles (kind of 'doily' style), all on a light aqua blue green background. The trim around the top is covered in a complimentary pattern of thin aqua and white stripes. I have meticulously hand applied both patterns with precision and great care.

I have also hand distressed the entire piece to add to it’s antique feel, 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. 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).

The matching formica divider tabs that are shown in the last picture are SOLD SEPERATELY; and you can find them right here:
