Project

Keepsake Recipe Cards

Copy a handful of your favorites -- a friend's strawberry pie, your sister's Sunday-night roast chicken -- onto these charming, artful recipe cards, and tie them with ribbon. Bundled with a few blank ones for the new mom to fill in, plus a pie plate, a pie server, and a pastry cutter, they make a delicious gift.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Download and print our three-card template onto an 8 1/2-by-11-inch piece of heavy card stock.

  2. Step 2

    Cut out each of the sturdy 3-by-5-inch cards -- they're just the right size for a recipe box.

    Was anyone able to repair the plain white screen problem? When I click on he template download, just a plain screen opens up.

    I, too, am making a keepsake recipe book for my daughter. I will find these templates very useful! I am making mine in a scrapbook type book with pictures of the completed recipe. If you have any other ideas, please email me at lm821@aol.com.

    if the window opens up white there should be an adobe acrobat reader open before clicking on the link to open it. after opening an adobe window then click on the link. if it still doesnt then theres a problem with the reader and should be downloaded again.

    I have the same problem, nothing but a white screen.

    Every time I try to see the template for these, I get a blank white screen. I don't understand why.

    I have templlates I've had and they never printed out the right size or weren't quit what I wanted. Thanks to you I can now have beautiful recipe cards to give to my daughter-in-laws at Christmas, plus making a cookbook for them. Thank you so much!!

    These are so handy to copy. And how nice the templates are free! They make sharing recipes with friends and family a snap! I'll be putting together a recipe box of my favorite family recipes for our family "Craft" pollyanna gift exchange this Christmas. I'm hoping my pollyanna will keep the recipe box and add her own favorites to mine. I like to include a memory on the back of each recipe (where I got it, when I served it that was memorable, and who especially liked it).
