Farmhouse Recipe Holder and Cards!

Hello! I sure hope you have all had a great weekend. Today I'm sharing a pretty recipe card holder and mini folders to hold recipe cards. I find I often just look up recipes online now, but I do have my favourites that I love to use over and over, as well as a few that have been passed down. It's nice to have a home for those ones and a pretty place to keep the one I'm using safe and tidy. I started out with a chickenwire frame from the dollar store and stained the wood a light brown colour. Then I tucked a piece of green cardstock inside the backing, along with a mason jar cut out.

My family loved this Sweet Potato Scones recipe I found online and I wanted to make sure I kept it handy to make again! The Farmhouse kitchen sign was easy to make with some white corrugated paper covered with a silver stain so that it resembled corrugated metal. I cut out the words from a larger piece of cardstock and layered it all together.

I used the chicken wire paper to cover the front of the mini file folders and then added some fun labels. The paper itself was black and white so I chose a few colours that would coordinate with the frame and painted in the details.

I used some Little Birdie Crafts flowers and chipboard, along with some more images cut from different papers, to create a pretty cluster on the corner of the frame.

Here's few closeups of the details, along with the yummy scones!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome and very crafty week 💚
