Organize Your Favorite Recipes
I love having a recipe binder to organize my recipes! By simply adding photo sheets to a binder, I can create my own recipe card binder with all my favorite recipes.
In my recipe organizer, I can add, delete or move my recipes around for specific occasions or label the sections with tabs by courses.
The photo sheets will also protect my recipes from spills, smudges or tears. My recipe binder organizer is my own personal cookbook of favorite recipes and meals.
My Recipe Card Binder
I personally selected the Green Marble Recipe Binder (shown above) and I left the text "My Favorite Recipes" on the cover even though it can be personalized with any text. I also liked the font so this binder was perfect for me.
Zazzle Binders are designed for 8.5" x 11" sized paper or photo sheets. Each binder has 4 pockets inside.
You can select the size of binder you desire. I opted for the 2" spine binders simply because I have a lot of recipes that I wanted to add to my binder, but you could easily select several 1" binders and have a separate binder for appetizers, entrees, desserts, etc.
My Photo Sheets
I personally selected two different types of photo sheets. Each style of photo sheet fits neatly into the Zazzle 3-ring binders.
One set of photo sheets holds six 4"x 6" cards. (2 vertical and 1 horizontal) If you select this photo sheet, the recipe cards you place in the vertical pockets will need to be trimmed approx. 1/8" to fit.
The second set of photo sheets holds four 5" x 7" cards. Obviously, there would be no need to trim your recipe cards for these pockets, but it holds 2 cards instead of three.

Printed Recipe Cards
The recipe cards you see featured in my binder are all available on Zazzle.com. I love the printed recipe cards professionally printed by Zazzle. I purchased several of my favorite recipe cards to add to my Recipe Binder.
