Cherish Recipes with a Scrapbook

It happens to all of us. We find this amazing recipe for peach cobbler or rice pudding and after we’re done making the delicious dessert, we shove the recipe in a book or a recipe box. Not only is the recipe written on a plain white index card, but the handwriting it’s written in looks like a 2-year-old wrote it. You should take pride in your great-great grandmother’s cheesecake recipe. Display it in a recipe scrapbook.

How to Bake Make Your Scrapbook

With these steps you’ll be able to display your recipes in a unique craft that you can cherish and pass down to your children.

  1. First choose a scrapbook for your recipes. If you have a lot of recipes to add to your scrapbook, you may want to choose a Snapload scrapbook. Snapload scrapbooks have expandable bindings, allowing for unlimited refills.
  2. If you want, design and decorate the cover of your recipe scrapbook. You may want to write “Family Recipes” or simple “Recipes” on the cover. Think of creative ways to do this. If you want to leave it plain, that’s fine too.
  3. Next, make recipe divider category pages. You’ll need five basic dividers – appetizers, soups and salads, main dishes, sides and desserts.
  4. After you’re finished with the dividers, sort through all of the recipes you want to include in the scrapbook. Sort them into piles according to the dividers you made.
  5. Lastly, design and decorate the recipe pages. When you’re finished, insert everything into the scrapbook.
  6. Make recipes, and enjoy!

Just a few things to keep in mind:

  • Have a plan. Layout pages to prevent mistakes.
  • Be as creative as you want
  • Don’t rush, take your time.
  • Most important, enjoy yourself and have fun!

Happy scrapbooking from all of us here at MemoryScrapbooks.com!
