I absolutely love this new box!  It can be used for a variety of things but I chose to make it into a recipe box.  To begin, I sponged Chocolate ink all over the inside and outside of the box.  When that was complete, I covered it with the new Cherry-O paper.  I added some ribbon and matching Cherry-O stickers for bling.  The box title is made by using our new Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue.  As if all of that wasn't enough bling, I used Liquid Glass and the Stardust Glitter Glue on some of the cherries.  The dividers are covered with some of the left over paper.  The titles on the dividers and the recipe cards are done with the Recipe Box stamp set.  I had so much fun with this box that I made two of them!
