Recipe Binder Vol. 1

I made this recipe binder for my sister to help her organize all the recipes she likes to print out from her computer. Before, she used to keep the print outs stacked in two filing folders.


I'm very pleased with how it turned out!  It took me forever to come up with this design that I thought my sister would be happy with.  She likes clean lines and nothing too busy with graphics and such. The yellow and brown pattern paper is from Craft Fair by American Crafts...love their stuff! The green polka dot strip on the side is by A Muse. The cute stamp images is a stamp set by Kim Hughes. Oh and that yummy bowl of guacamole was made from scratch by sister for my birthday weekend!


For the spine of the recipe binder, I used the Stitched Uppercase Alphabet stamp set from A Muse. The letters in the set are clear so it was really easy to place each letter where I wanted them.


I used some plastic tabbed dividers with pockets so the recipes could be organized by category.


Of course I have to show a pic of the yummy food my sister made for my birthday celebration! We had steak and shrimp fajitas and salad Nicoise (per my request) from recipes in the binder. I pretty much ate my way through the whole weekend!


Last, but not least, the yummy chocolate cake with fudgy chocolate frosting! It was super yummy!
