About the Celebrating Ordinary Moments Blog

Mission Statement
Thank you for checking out my blog. I started this blog to create a place where people are able to find inspiration and share ideas. I find myself surfing the web looking for inspiration that is unique and different. If I find an interesting tutorial I'll share it with you. I will include a "live" link back to the original blog, store or web site so that you may have the option to visit and learn more about the designer and other services, class or kits they may offer. By posting tutorials I am hoping to help inspire people that are interested in creating something fresh and new.

Making Memories Lunch Box tin. I recieved this Tin at CKU in Indianapolis in 2002.
It was filled with Making Memories baby embellishments.

I removed the hardware and the front cover

I used Daisyd's French Market Paper Pad

Measuring, cutting and attaching my paper to the tin

Reattaching the front cover

Reattaching the handle

Choosing more of the pattern paper for the coordinating recipe book

I made the recipe book from chipboard and attached pattern paper

Deciding on titles and recipes for the book

I used K & Company Chipboard Die-Cut Shapes to enhance the covers

I used 1 inch keys to bind the recipe book and attached assorted ribbons

I run my pencil back and forth on the back of my patterns
for easier tracing on my cardstock
