You may have noticed in yesterday’s post that I had a recipe box alongside the recipe card for Cumquat Jam. The recipe box was originally a wooden filing box I used to use for keeping records of reading activity when I was teaching. It is now used as a recipe box. I decided to cover the box using some pictures from a Donna Hay magazine. Click on the magazine to go to the website.
This particular food magazine always has beautiful photography and I thought it would be a good idea to use the photos on the box. It was my first attempt at decoupage and I was quite delighted with the result. I made this about fifteen years ago so it has stood the test of time.

My family makes fun of my filing system as I seem to file things differently to them. 😉 e.g. All my salad recipes are under S for salad, all my cake recipes are under C for cake whereas they would file them L for Lemon Cake, S for Sultana Cake. Different strokes for different folks.
I also used Donna Hay pictures from a calendar when framing pictures for the kitchen.
