Recipe Card Caddy ~ Buttons and Bows at ABC Challenges

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog!

Today, I have a new creation to share with you.
This is my 2nd project as January Guest Designer at ABC Challenges.
The challenge theme from Jan 15 to 31 is B for ~ Buttons and Bows.
I'd like to thank Nikki for having me as the guest designer!

One of my goals this year is to create practical and functional projects.

A co-worker of mine has embarked a new adventure, attending a 6-month 
Baking and Pastry Arts Program at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts.
She is an excellent baker to start with, always bringing delicious 
bake goods to work. I am sure she will excel in her skills.
She has also started her blog, The White Oven,
documenting her culinary adventure.
I wish Janice lots of success!

I made an apron shaped recipe card caddy for Janice.
The image is Tilda with Love Cake. I have water colored her with DIs.

The caddy measures 5"(W) x 7"(H) x 1.75"(D). 
It can hold 3" x 5" or 4" x 6" index cards.
The miniature rolling pin is attached to a note tag which
is tucked in the pocket behind the focal image.

Here's the back side of the caddy.
Extra note cards can be tucked in the pocket behind the lace trim.

Side view and inside of the caddy.

Designer paper used~ Maja Design A Gift For You Collection.
Dies and punch used~ Marianne Design, Magnolia, Memory Box,
Joy Craft, Spellbinders, and Stampin'Up.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace, 18mm Danielle antique white cluny lace,
30mm white zig zag cotton lace, natural hemp twine, miniature rolling pin,
WOC apple blossom flowers, tiny vintage pink bloom, sticky tapes,
10mm red/cream square check ribbon, red button twine,
 top stitching thread, white teeny tiny pom pom trim.

And thank you so much for stopping by again.


I wish to enter this creation in the following challenges:
