Recipe Holder Gift Idea

Super cute and easy Recipe Holder tutorial { lilluna.com } This is a great gift idea!!

I like to make my mom something for Mother’s Day each year. This year, my brain was fried – and I was drawing a blank. I was so glad when I remembered a tutorial I saw on U-Create by the Shanty 2 Chic Sisters.

They made a cute board that held pictures. I wanted to do something similar but have it hold recipes for my mom. This is what I did…

1. Mark the center of your main wood piece on the top and the bottom based off of the width of the board and the thickness of the board.

2. Drill a hole slightly larger than the screw on the finial. *If you want to make the holder sturdier and with smoother transitions, you can flatten the connecting parts on the frame using a forstner bit.

    1. Thank you, Whitney!! And thank you for the inspiration! You guys are awesome! PS – Moving to TX next month and am hoping I’ll finally be able to meet you talented sisters. 🙂

  2. Kristyn,
    I love the recipe holder. It is pretty enough to enjoy looking at it on your counter all the time – leaving a recipe attached so it will encourage someone to make that recipe right now! Thank you for showing EXACTLY how you completed the steps. I plan to make one in teal for my daughter, perhaps one for my d-i-l also – great Mother’s Day gift. Need one for myself!
