I purchased this for my daughter's bridal shower. I bought the recipe cards and wrote down family recipes from my mother, grandmother and myself and put them in the box. I also asked each shower guest to bring their favorite recipe to add to the box. My daughter and son-in-law will be able to add their own recipes. The box turned out beautifully. We love the slit on top to hold the card as you cook. Everybody wanted to know where I got such a great gift!!
