This is a promotional year-end item we put together recently. Using Jeffrey’s international travels as inspiration, Catherine created recipe cards. On one side are photos from some of the more memorable trips, with recipes on the back.
The recipes are actual dishes we tried in each location. For the recipe box, we used maps we’ve been saving from our trips to cover the outside. Each one is entirely unique. One box might have maps of Boston and China, and the next will have maps of Venice and Minnesota.
As much as we liked using our Martha Stewart craft skills, they were very labor intensive. So we didn’t get to make too many of them. We did create some other versions using metal boxes with a clear window on them, which looked great too. The boxes were all stuffed with snacks and treats from around the world.
