Today I decided to clean out my recipe box. (Al says "Seems like you are nesting. Are you sure you aren't pregnant?" Ha! That would be a miracle for this old grandma!)
This recipe box is one I purchased back in the '70's. It was tight on the budget (we were in college) but it has been worth it! I really like it. It holds 3x5 recipe cards. Seems like most recipe boxes today hold 4x6 cards. We didn't have those back then I don't think.
Just like we only used to get photo prints in 3x5's but now they come in 4x6. We've gotten bigger - in girth also!
I have some precious recipes in this box; like this one from Al's mother.
When she passed away, we copied all her recipes so all of us girls could have them.
My recipe dividers were awful and needed to be replaced so badly!! Most of them had lost their green protective label covers. I thought about purchasing some new ones, but decided I could make them with my Printmaster program. That way I could categorize them just like I wanted.
I printed off the food categories and also copied some clipart onto each card. It was so fun to design! You could also use cute printed cardstock paper.
I laminated the cards...
