      THANK YOU so much, Marty! I love those old recipe cards too! There’s just something purely amazing about them! 😀

  2. Amy says:

    I love it! I have recipe cards written out by my Grandmother and Great Grandmother, and they were starting to fade, so I laminated them so i’d always have them! And if while cooking I drip something on them they just wipe clean! You should do that too, so they’re around for ever!! I have to make a box for mine, I have them in a book, and it’s just not the same! Can you tell me what kind of wax you used? I’d like mine to have that same color 😀

    I love your recipe box. What is the name of the font you used? It has a nice old fashioned script.

  5. Cheyenne says:

    I love this! Where did you get the alphabet dividers?

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Cheyenne! I had the alphabet dividers, but I have seen them at my local craft/office supply store! Hope that helps! 😀

  7. Mary says:

    What did you use to keep the cards from falling over backwards (upright)?

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Mary! For now, I have a rock that’s holding up the cards, but they should stay put once I get a few more recipes in there! 😀

  8. Pat says:

    Can you tell me the dementions of your recipe box?

    Where did you get the bookplates? Also, how thick is the floor underpayment you always use?
    LOVE your blog, your home, and your projects! SPECTACULAR!

    Thank you!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much! I’m so happy you enjoy our blog! I found the bookplates at JoAnn’s. They come in a pack. The floor underlayment is 1/4″ thick. It’s so versatile! We love it! I hope that helps! 🙂
