Materials Needed:

  • picture frame (we used a 4x6" frame)
  • matting (optional)
  • spool of ribbon in desired color
  • old family recipe card


Sort through old recipe cards or photos passed down from previous generations. If you can't find an old family recipe card, create your own using our free recipe card template.

Open back of picture frame and place the recipe card inside so the handwritten side is showing through the glass front. Secure back of picture frame. Then, slide a piece of ribbon through the hole in the top of the picture frame, and tie in a bow at the top.

Gift and Display

Wrap the frame and surprise Mom with a meaningful gift that she can display in the kitchen to inspire and remind her of all the strong and beautiful women that made an impact on her life.
