- A 3-ring binder - 3" would be great and a clear pocket on the front is handy too.
- Page protectors - easy to keep clean!
- Left over craft paper and stickers if you want
- computer paper
Then I made dividers labeling the section. Hints and tips, breakfast, breads, soups and salads, main dishes, kids favorites, pasta, cookies, deserts, and cake decorating ideas.
Next start adding you recipes. I have a mix of magazine cut outs ( I LOVE pictures.),
and hand written. Some of the are on odd ball scraps so I just glue them to a piece of paper first.
A couple of hints here.
If you are printing from a blog: cut and paste to word or whatever program you use. Also include the name of the blog/site you printed from. This makes for easy referencing if you need help or more information about that recipe.When dealing with hand written recipes, be sure to write who you got the recipe from or what book you copied from.
Also a binder with an inside pocket is nice. Sometimes you want to try a recipe before you add it or you simply don't have time to add it yet.
Are you lucky enough to have a spot to stand this baby up? Make sure to label the spine.
These make great gifts. I made one for my sister one year. It had red and white checked paper and I found some cute little ant stickers. Very Cute!! You can make it so individualized it's insane!!
Remember to think about Christmas, mother's Day, and birthdays. You could even make a smaller Blank Family Recipes Favorites. Make one for each sibling ! Or you could make one for a missionary, collage student, or newly weds.
