Recipe Holders - Great Holiday Gifts!

Good Morning!

I am finally off of work until January 3rd!  I am so looking forward to relaxing and getting a few goals accomplished.  First, I have to head out to finish my Christmas shopping.  Normally, I am done by now, but this year, I am very behind!  Wish me luck!!

I have just a quickie for you today.  These recipe holders are super simple.  You purchase a wooden clothes pin (the larger variety).  I took mine apart to give it a more finished look,  I used copic markers to color the inside of the pin and the sides.  Honestly, I was too lazy to get the wood stain out and make a huge mess.  The copics did fantastic!!  After coloring the inside, I cut paper to size to fit on the outside.  I used some stamps on some of them to add the extra special touch.  Finish with a flower and a brad and Whola!! you have a cute recipe holder to keep your recipes clean!

Enjoy the rest of your week!  Remember to slow down and enjoy your family and the true meaning of the holiday!

Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings until next time!
