Happiness is a recipe card holder

Ever see a project idea and decide you have to do it immediately?  It just happened to me when I saw this wooden recipe holder from Mod Podger David here on Mod Podge Rocks.

This is my variation...


You know me, black is my favorite color.  I scrounged through my scrap wood box (yes, I have one), and came up with these three...


I was in such a hurry that I spray painted these before I took a before picture. 


The phrases were cut from a Melody Ross border that I had in my stash.  I Mod Podged them onto the blocks. Distressing the blocks was a last minute decision, but it worked out for the best.

 

To attach the metal clip to the top wood block, I used E-6000.  Because the block was a triangle, I needed to wedge it into this plastic cup to stabilize it.  I left it in there with the clip on top for a few hours until the glue set.  


 I decided to use Gorilla Glue to put this together.  It worked great--remember use it sparingly because it expands!


I thought I'd show you it in action.  This note about sums it up for my house!  How about you?
