Week #3 in the Weekly Challenge is the Recipe Binder.
I have had a recipe binder in my household for over 5 years now. It is where I keep clip its and torn out magazine recipes, recipes from the web, as well as all my tried & true recipes. It is full of recipes from all different sources.
For this challenge, I decided to make it look a bit more pretty. For years it has just been a large white binder. Nothing special. Here is what it looks like now.
I got the scrapbook paper at Target for a pack of coordinating sheets for 99 cents.
My dividers are just decorative manila folders cut in half and 3 hole punched.
My dividers that make up my binder are:
Desserts (pies, cookies, cakes)
This N That (spice mixes, misc)
Kids (Foods that are catered for kids)
Parties (Food for parties & decorating ideas)
Birds (I make homemade wild bird treats)
Food Gifts (jar mixes)
Cleaning (handmade cleaners)
A close up.
Here is a peek at what it looks like inside.
Here's another page.
Here is what I use for recipe cards to make them into printer friendly versions to include in my binder.
Over at Skip to my Lou's she has a AWESOME "Recipe Card Maker". I made these over there! Aren't they are SOOO Cute!
Go check it out now.
Here are all three of my binders: The Recipe Binder, Meal Planning Binder & a Cookbook I made up several years ago with my Mom's family recipes.
