I made a few of these recipe card holders as gifts last Christmas and also one for myself using THIS tutorial from Shanty 2 Chic. This was the first of three recipe holders that I made and the worst one by the way. I didn't realize just how fast the wood would soak up the wood stain and so it ended up looking pretty sloppy. You live and learn I guess. The other ones looked a lot better so I gave those to my mom and mother-in-law.
HERE. Oh and notice the cute metal pear there...I got that for 35 cents at Tai Pan! Score! I love getting things for cheap.
