Today I'm sharing a repurposed Valentine sign that I turned into an everyday recipe holder using the new "Made With Love" Collection! 

Any type of signage will work, but I've used a Valentine mason jar-shaped sign from the Dollar General.  I removed the jute bow and the gingham hearts before starting:


Next, I cut strips of patterned paper that matched the sizes of the "slats" and glued them over the painted area of the sign.

I wanted to add some color along the seams of the slats, so I cut strips of the Paper Frills in half and then glued them just along the edge.

I cut strips of paper to cover two wooden clothespins and then glue them to the two middle slats.  To the bottom right, I added a sticker and Doodle Pops!

To the top (below the metal lid) I added a pink scalloped background that I cut from a card base.  Next, I wound chunky twine around horizontally and then layered on die-cuts, stickers and Doodle Pops.  

I love that the sign can be hung or placed on an easel for easy viewing of the recipe that's been clipped on.  What a sweet gift for your favorite baker...just add hand-written recipe cards and a blank booklet of the fun Recipe Cards!
