Paper Napkin Applique - Christmas Recipe Card Box

This project would make a really great gift for a mother who has a daughter moving out and wishes to pass on the family Christmas cookie recipes. The mother can hand write or print out the recipes on cards, fill the box and wrap as a gift. This idea is of course also excellent for anyone wishing to share favorite holiday recipes. It is a perfect decoration for the kitchen at Christmas time as well.

- purchased plain wooden recipe card box
