Recipes at Your Fingertips

by - April 11, 2013

I must have over 20 recipe books in my house.  Sad part is, I hardly ever use them.  Each book seems to be filled with recipes we ripped out of magazines, printed off the computer, etc.  And now with Pinterest, I have a hundred or more recipes bookmarked on my computer.  I needed an easier way to keep our favorite recipes handy without having to dig through piles of pages.

I used some off-white cardstock to make these quick - and handy! - recipe cards.
I used DaFont to add the word recipe into a simple Word document.  Then I just added some lines and printed out onto my cardstock.  I cut each to my desired size, and added some Frenchy stamps to each side.  Pretty easy right?
What I think is my genius moment, is adding the metal ring.  With the metal ring, I can easily hang it in the kitchen for when I need it, and I can add more recipes when I have the time.

It's less bulky and a quick grab for when I don't want to spend time flipping through all of those recipe books.
