Recipe Box

I made this recipe box for my mom who's coming to visit over spring break. My dear husband taught me how to cook and my mom really likes most of the dishes I prepare when she is visiting. So, I wanted to put together a recipe book but then I saw this wonderful idea in the Cricut MB and decided to give it a try. Hope my mom likes it. I will post materials and tools once my little one goes to bed. Thanks for looking!!
