Bringing Order To Recipe Card Madness

December 03, 2016
Recipes—you can never have enough, right? However wonderful to have, they always seem to end up splattered in grease, shoved in a giant unorganized pile and lost in life’s chaos,. Whether it’s the priceless box of cards you inherited, the great recipes you’ve printed off the Internet, or the occasional napkin scribbled at a picnic, there’s never a good place to fit everything! What’s a gal to do with such a carefully curated collection? Glad you asked. Just make this super easy, super organized recipe binder kit with and cute downloadable labels! With some help from Ziploc® brand bags, it’s easy to get them all in one place, no matter the size! And with easy open tabs, it’ll be easy to get them out, even with greasy hands :)

Materials

  • Three ring binder
  • Gallon sized Ziploc® brand bags
  • Pint size Ziploc® brand bags
  • Washi tape (the cuter the design the better)
  • Three-ring hole punch (or single hole punch)
  • Scissors
  • All your recipes!
  • All our cute labels!
  • Avery labels 8478 - or similar sized labels
  • Access to a printer (for the labels)

Directions

  • 1 Gather up all your recipes – from Internet print outs to grandma’s recipe cards to takeout menus.
  • 2 Organize your recipes by meal, ingredient or source (we have labels for whatever method you choose).
  • 3 Fold/tuck the bottom of your gallon sized Ziploc® brand bag in to create a stronger base.
  • 4 Reinforce the side of your gallon sized Ziploc® brand bag with washi tape. Simply adhere a strip on the front and back of the bag and trim at top.
  • 5 Next, punch three holes in your gallon sized Ziploc® brand bag. If you’re using a three-hole punch, this is easy. If using a single hole punch, first measure where your holes need to go to match up with the rings of the binder.
  • 6 Place the gallon sized Ziploc® brand bags in your binder! How many you need to keep organized is up to you. 
  • 7 Download and print our labels onto Avery 8478 label paper - or similar sized labels (so you don’t have to spend time cutting!) Fix onto your corresponding bags.
  • 8 Fill open your gallon sized Ziploc® brand bags with the easy open tabs and fill them with recipes! Try using Ziploc® brand sandwich bags for your smaller, more precious recipes - like your grandma’s pretty cards :)
  • 9 Print out our meal-planning schedule and put in a Gallon sized Ziploc® brand bag. Use a dry erase marker to write your meal ideas on the Ziploc® brand bag. Then wipe off and repeat the following week.  
  • 10 Now decorate the cover of your binder! You can use our “My Recipes” label if you want :)
