Magazine file decoration

Spice up your recipe collection

Spice up your kitchen simply by adding a few special touches. It takes very little effort to turn a kitchen into a feel-good space that’s extra fun to work in simply by introducing beautiful accessories and decorative items that you’ve made yourself. One idea is a hand-decorated recipe holder, ideal for storing the many recipes and cooking tips that often get left lying around in a jumbled heap. A magazine file helps keep your recipes in order, making it easier to keep track. A brilliant way to decorate your magazine file is to use edding matt paint markers, available in eye-catching, opaque colours. We decorated our holders with a selection of designs, including a rolling pin, a spatula, a whisk and a wooden spoon. Depending on how you want to categorise your recipes, you could use the wooden spoon symbol for baking recipes, the whisk for soups and stews and the spatula for meat dishes – just use your imagination!
