I'm sure that no one is surprised to see another Pinterest project. I really do love that site and love all of the inspiration that I can get from others. Thank you to whoever it was that sent me that invite so many months ago.
I have a box that is full of old day timers, I don't really know why I choose to save them. It feels like some day I might want to look back and see what I was doing on March 25th 2007 (something fun...this is hubs birthday). Either way I can't bring myself to get rid of them. I spot this awesome project and its a must! Just think of all of the years I can get in that tiny cute box! Here is the original pin on Pinterest. The project comes from Design Sponge and directions can be found here.
The hard part come with finding that adorable tiny fruit basket! Its next to impossible! I found them on Etsy in this shop, I paid $6 for a dozen of them and then $5 shipping. Which makes them less than a dollar, if I can find some other projects to use the remaining baskets. No worries I have a few ideas already pinned.
The original post used vintage post cards as her month dividers. I thought I would take my own spin on it and bought a few sheets of vintage themed card stock at Hobby Lobby, gotta love those 6 pages for $1 sales. I also purchased a packet of black craft paper recipe cards. I figured I have a favorite that is seasonal and would include it. Packet of 18 cards was $2.99 plus that awesome 40% off coupon.
After I cut all 180 of my index cards I realized that the baskets I have are larger than the one featured. If you purchase your baskets from this same shop I think I would go with the 5x7 index cards rather than the 4x6 used here.
Not a fan of the recycled paper basket look? Don't worry Anthropology has amazing ceramic fruit baskets in 5 beautiful color and in two sizes available here.
