My recipes are out of control and as I add to my collection, my current recipe binder is overflowing. So, it’s time to upgrade! This pin inspired my latest project. Here is how I did it …
I bought a large binder and added a pretty cover. The cover is an 11″x11″ piece of scrapbook paper.
I added a 11″x3″ piece of scrapbook paper to the side of the binder. I used my cricut to add the letters “COOKBOOK”.
I created section dividers by cutting scrapbook paper to 8.5″x11″ and inserting them into the plastic sleeves. I made divider labels by cutting light blue index cards to 1.5″ to 2.5″. I folded them in half wrote in the title. I used packing tape to affix the labels the dividers I’d created.
I created a template in Word to use for all my recipes. I’m sharing my hard work with you and you get one of my Pinterest recipes (Cajun Shrimp Casserole). I’ll be adding a post about this recipe very soon. You will notice that next to each ingredient, I include the calories and fat. At the end of my recipe, I calculate the calories and fat per serving. Now, I’ve attached the word document below. I’ve never done this before, so if the link doesn’t work, my apologies.
I also created a recipe index to place at the end of my binder. Included just for you! I used a page numbering sequence for each divider. I have separate word files (that includes the recipes) for each section of my binder.
