DIY Recipe Binder Tutorial & Templates
Do you have a pile of recipes sitting around in a messy pile? Well I did, and since it is almost spring I decided to organize them and create a recipe binder. I also added a conversion chart on my recipe binder cover page, the free download templates are at the bottom, happy spring cleaning!
Blank Recipe Templates (click Recipe Page Template )
Double sided tape
1-2 inch Binder
Binder Cover Page (click Recipe Binder Cover Template)
Index Tabs (mine had pockets which will be helpful for storing loose recipe before creating recipe pages)
The 5 Main Tabs I created were:
Starters/Soup/Salad, Main Meals, Desserts, Breads, Sides/Misc
Then under main dishes i used post its and created sub categories of: chicken, beef, lamb, fish, pork, vegetarian.
Under Desserts I created sub categories of cookies, bars, brownies, muffins, cakes, cupcakes, pies.
To create the recipe pages I either cut a magazine page and pasted it on a blank sheet of paper with the double sided tape leaving some room for notes, or used the Recipe Page Template and hand wrote the recipes, then put each one in a page protector back to back.
Here are the templates again:
