I have a passion for old family recipes. I love seeing the handwriting of my grandma On old yellow recipe cards. Some of her recipes were and journals. My aunt has made copies to share with other family members.
I created a simple clean binder with the recipe templates along with recipe templates for 3 x 5 cards.
Since this is the principle you can print as many as you wish. Print one for yourself, print another binder for your neighbor. And give the gift of a stack of recipe cards tied in a pretty ribbon to your hairdresser.
The printable includes a spine to add to the binder along with a cover. I order these 1-inch binders on Amazon.
I print the spine, cover and recipe cards on cardstock.
The recipe pages for the binder on regular copy paper.
The recipe cards are aligned so that you can print on front and back.
My printer prints on front and back and it the best printer I’ve ever had! Bought it in 2014 and works like a charm. If your printer doesn’t, simply flipped the paper over and refeed into the printer.
I quickly cut out my recipe cards using this paper trimmer. Tip: Cut the sides first, then cut across the width of the paper.
