Upcycled Recipe Card Boxes by Karen Malcolm

Recipe card boxes may seem like a quaint idea in the Internet age, but these Joseph Cornell-inspired upcycled boxes by Karen Malcolm make me start to rethink my recipe (non) organization system...

My go-to recipe for all holiday entertaining (a buzz-inducing no-cook whiskey cookie, YUM) was handwritten by my grandmother on an index card that I constantly misplace amidst piles of recipes printed from the web and pages torn from magazines. With a wide range of software available for organizing recipes and printing customized index cards, a cool box actually seems like just the thing I need.

Rhode Island artist Karen Malcolm custom crafts these artful boxes from found objects and ephemera, working with customers to create a one-of-a-kind pieces. Her found object artwork is also wonderfully strange and unique. See more of her recipe boxes and artwork at Malcolm Studio Shop.
