Bridget, one of our sisters, has an amazing collection of recipes that she has gathered over the years from cooking magazines. Every time she would see a recipe that she wanted to try or one that looked amazing, she would rip it out from the magazine and put it in her recipe binder.
Well, I started gathering quite the collection of recipe magazines. It was becoming a problem because I forgot what recipes I wanted to try in the magazines. So they would just sit on a shelf gathering dust. Every time I would see those magazines, I would think of Bridget and her neatly organized binder.
I knew exactly what I needed to do...
I started out by getting a one inch binder. I printed off the words "Recipes" and added it to come cute scrapbook paper.
I used scrapbook paper to make my "dividers". I picked different colors and patterns that coordinated somewhat.
I used my Silhouette to make the tabs. I picked the tabs through their online library. Then I typed in the tabs what I wanted them to say. I printed on my printer the tabs, make sure to print the registration marks. Then I sent it through my Silhouette machine and cut them out. And then tape them onto your sheet protector.
These are the tabs I used, but you can choose whatever and how many you want.
Soup and Chili
Pizza and Pasta
I'm loving my Recipe Binder. I feel so organized. It's so nice to go through all those fun magazines and take out the recipes I want. Then I let my kids make collages with the rest of the magazine. It's a win-win situation!
My kids also like going through the binder and picking out recipes they want to try.
And when I find a recipe online, I print it out with a picture and add it to the binder. It's our go-to book in the kitchen!
