Another Washing Powder Box

Well I decided to paint and decorate another washing powder box and this time it is a recipe box, my kitchen is lilac and blacks so in keeping with that theme I came up with this -

I painted the box lilac to start with then matted some Pink Petticoat gingham paper onto some black card and stuck it all of the way around the box, I cut out the letters with my silhouette and also cut out some pots and pans which you can see on the next photo -

I haven't filled it with recipes yet but I'm sure it will be full in no time, I've bought a laminator so that I can get them all laminated and kept nice and clean.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
