Let’s Get Cookin’ with the Clip it Up

With my wedding coming up fast I’ve been pressured into trying to get a little more organized.  One of the things I’ve been wanting to do is to decorate a Clip it Up Mini for my kitchen and use it for recipes.  Now I really don’t have many recipes yet (if you have some good ones let me know), so my Clip it Up Mini will be a little bare but hopefully over the next few months I’ll be able to fill it up. 

I took Aphra’s idea for decorating the tabs (Fancy Tabs) and used the Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Line and got to work. 

First I used Krylon spray paint and painted my Clip it Up Mini cream. Then I cut out paper in the shape of the base, and picked a coordinating border for the side. I mod podged them to the base.  (It was a little bit tricky to make the paper smooth around the rounded edge, but a little bit of patience goes a long way)


Then it was the fun and easy part. Decorating the Tabs.


I made the following categories

  • Menu (I’m being optimistic-hopefully this category will have the recipes that I’m planning on making that week)
  • Breakfast
  • Sides
  • Pasta
  • Soups (I’m so excited I have some good fall soups that I can’t wait to make)
  • Breads
  • Salads
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Slow Cooker (my favorite Sunday dinners)
  • Dessert
  • Other

As you can see the tabs aren’t fancy I just covered them with paper and put a few embellishments on them.  I think they turned out cute.

I then tied a bow around the top and added a few tags from the Domestic Goddess Line.


Here’s the final product!

Wish me luck!
