I have wanted a recipe box and card holder for a long time. I wanted one that could be cleaned as well. I was looking through our office supplies and came up with an excellent idea to make my own. It is made from floppy disc's  and a floppy  box. This is so awesome!  The box will hold many favorite recipes that are used often and it has a recipe holder! This method is fast, easy, and functional.  

Step 1: Supplies

What you will need:
  • 1 Floppy box with all the discs
  • Recipes printed on paper or cards
  • Scissors
  • Glue I recommend glue that can be re-moved if needed.
  • Marking pen
  • Straight edge
  • Magnet

Whoa. These look like old 3.5&quot; floppy disks. Are you sure they are CDs? Good recycling, either way.
I guess I better change the wording. I am out of the office sink. Thanks for letting me know!
