Cookbooking: Recipe Cards

Alecia here...
Tired of the same old look of the 4x6 recipe card? Then create your own, and customize the size! For example, see the shapes and colors of the recipe cards on my layouts below? Not your everyday black and white. If you want a new way to break up the monotony of page design for your heritage cookbooks, try these recipe card styles.

* Jillibean Soup offers smaller recipe cards with some lines, perfect for layouts
* try using journaling tags! jot down the ingredients and add to the mix
* want to document a school lunchbag favorite? try a library card for your recipe!
* recording a perfect birthday cake recipe? use half of a birthday card for your cake

Your cookbooking layouts don't have to feel monotonous. Hope some of these tips inspire you to start or add to your family heritage recipe book today!

*use Thickers to title a homemade cardstock recipe card

*create a recipe card from patterned paper, and hide it within a flap

*use the recipe cut from the packaging! add some zip to your scrapbooks and fess up if you've ever used a manufacture's suggested recipe

I try the manufacturer's recipes quite a bit. I've not been disappointed very often! Thanks Alecia!

So very cute!! Love the idea of this. These would make super cute Christmas gifts. Just make them blank for the receiver and they can put their own recipe on them. Thanks for sharing.

Alecia, Love your recipe tips. I do agree that recipe layouts don't have to be boring. And a great way to make them unique is by using different ways to journal the recipe itself. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
