How to Make a Recipe Binder Organizer

http://reviewthispersonalreviews.blogspot.com/


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.

  1. You are so organized. My recipes are all thrown in a folder. Your binder makes a lot of sense. It looks like a great way to organize recipes.

  2. A recipe binder is an absolute necessity in the kitchens of cooks who love to save and build on favorite family recipes and try out new recipes. Cookbooks are handy, but a recipe binder organizer filled with your 'favorites' and 'never-want-to-lose' recipes from mom/grandma/favorite aunt is perfect. My recipe binder also includes two pages of typed out 'menu plans' and in parentheses after each I've put all the ingredients for each, which makes quick work of writing out a weekly grocery list. I currently have 43 menus that are favorites with my family, which gives me over 6 weeks of meals without repeating. :-)

  3. The recipe binder is such a good idea, especially since it can be personalized to match any kitchen or anyone's personality. Since our house fire, I've been trying to maintain as much "paper" online as possible, I still have a drawer in my baker's rack dedicated to printed recipes, though so yes, they would be much more easily located in a binder. I am very honored to see my banana pudding recipe card in your binder. Thanks so much!

  5. I love having my own recipe binder for all my clippings. I actually have several and one holds only my tried and true recipes. I wish they made the pretty ones in smaller sizes that are easier to manage. I think these binders make great gifts for those setting up housekeeping.
