Recipe Box

I have tried many times to organize my recipes. I have bought the books that the cards can fit in, but ran out of room to add plastic protectors. I have the three-ring binder with clippings and printed favorites. I often run from one to the next and then to all the cookbooks I have for the one I'm looking for and can't remember which book or binder it is in. I decided that I want to put all my recipes in one place, so I made this box. It will take me some time to get the recipes that aren't on cards yet ready for the box, but I know in the end I'll be happy to have one place to go looking for those recipes. I used the idea from Sister's Stuff to get me started. Great inspiration!
I added the conversion chart to a card in the back of the box so I could have a quick reference. Just another way to keep organized in 2010.


  1. This is very creative and really cute. It would make a great gift for a bridal shower as well. Where can you buy the box at?

  2. Hi Mrs. E,
    Just wanted to let you know that you won the Zipper Daisy from my etsy shop! congrats! send me an email at craftaholicsanon@gmail(dot)com with your mailing address.

  3. Really cute! I need to make my own... the box I have has the weirdest pre-printed divider tabs that don't match with the types of foods I make at all. Great idea to include the conversion chart too!
