Christmas Recipe Mini Album In A Box for Reneabouquets

Merry Christmas everyone, it's one of my favorite times of year and this year is especially important because of all we have been through in 2020. It's a blessing to remember what this season is all about and that is LOVE... we love because HE loved us first. Every year I make certain specific cookies for Christmas that are a family favorite.  I thought it would be fun to create a little mini album to hold these memorable recipes and give it to my daughter so she will always have the recipes of the cookies that filled her tummy during this time of year.  The box to hold them is a Graphic 45 ATC Book Box and I decorated it with some festive Christmas cardstock. 
 On the outside of the box I used the Beautiful Board Small April In Paris Adornment Pattern and I embossed it with brass embossing powder. I then used Christmas Burgundy Mulberry Poinsettias, Roses & Holly Leaves Flower Set for that festive look. Some Christmas greenery and tiny brass bells from my stash. I also used the Graphic 45 claw feet to rest the box upon. 

To embellish the front of the mini album I created I used one of my favoite items from Reneabouquets store which is Small Square Shaker Box DIY Kit Laser Cut Chipboard. These are so much fun to create with and have endless possibilities on what you can do with them. Inside I filled it with Beautiful Board Large First Snow Snowflakes and a mixture of Gold Fine German Glitter GlassNo Hole Glass Microbeads in SilverNo Hole Glass Microbeads in Black, and mica flakes from my stash. 

I also hung a charm I created off the side of the album, and this included Reneabouquets Tea Time Trinkets which were painted with black gesso and then white gold Finnabair wax was rubbed on top to give it a brass finish. 

The inside of the mini album was created with pockets to hold your recipe cards and decorated with an assortment of Beautiful Board Special Edition Homemade Christmas Cookies which were painted and then sprinkled with fine clear glitter for a sugary look. A Metal Clip Bookmark With Cabochon from the store was clipped on to a page for some added fun. 

If you would like a better closeup of the entire project I have provided you a video below so you can see each and every Christmas goodie used from Reneabouquets store. Wishing you a magical Christmas season, filled with health, peace and joy. xoxo
