About a month ago I posted a project share of a small recipe box that I had made for a gift exchange. I also posted a video of the recipe box and asked my YouTube subscribers if they would be interested in a tutorial on how to make it. I had a lot of great responses and there was definitely some interest in a recipe box tutorial.
I am happy to say that this tutorial is now available. I did a video for putting the box together and made a printable PDF template for the pieces of the box. I hope you all enjoy the tutorial and hopefully make a recipe box yourselves. There is a lot of versatility in this box and it could potentially be used for more than just recipes. I must just make mine into a desk organizer.
The supplies needed to make this recipe box are really easy and stuff every paper crafter probably already has.
- Chipboard – If you don’t have medium weight chipboard use a cereal box. You can glue two cereal boxes together to make it very thick. Chipboard could also be substituted for another medium such as cardboard if that’s more convenient.
- Patterned paper and/or cardstock
It is also helpful if you have something to make score marks with and a ruler.
How to Make a Recipe Box
The easiest way for me to show you how to make this recipe box is by actually making one on video. You can pre-cut the pieces you need and follow along with the video to make the recipe box.
Printable PDF Recipe Box Template
The recipe box will hold any 4″ x 6″ recipe cards. If you want to print off the same ones I used you can find the button for those below.
If you make this, I would love to see it. Make a video showing your box or a blog post and link it here.
