How to Make a Recipe Binder with Free DIY Recipe Binder Printables – Organize all of your favorite recipes and recipes you want to try in one cute place with these cute, pretty, and practical DIY Recipe Binder Printables in 4 different colors. Well it’s about that time of year! Things are getting super busy, we’re on full-on planning mode with school and birthdays and holidays, and it’s time to share a free printable to help out with all of that craziness. This year I’m sharing one that’s both practical and for pleasure. I’m so excited to share these, and also just have them because I’m a total foodie. I LOVE trying new recipes and creating my own, and since I’m being honest today, I have recipes EVERYWHERE. I know it drives Mr.
But I have some in file folders, some in regular folders, some in piles, some in drawers, some in cabinets, some scribbled in notebooks, and some in my recipe box. Maybe some where I can’t think of right now or even some that I’ve forgotten about. In any case, I’m making it my mission to get them all in ONE place, and I’ve made these free printable recipe pages to help me get the job done. So enough of my rambling. Let’s talk about what’s in this DIY Recipe Binder Printables pack. Think of these as a printable cookbook of the best kind, a personalized cookbook binder, where you get to keep all of your favorite recipes and all of the recipes that you want to try, all in one cute place.
I was having a really hard time deciding which colors to make it so I ended up making 4, yes FOUR, different ones: Aqua and Gold, Pink and Gold, Navy and Gold, and Black and Gold. You can use just one color scheme or mix and match, totally up to you, but each one is 43 pretty pages long. To save on computer ink, you could also choose to print any of these in gray scale. I’m just going to share it with you today anyway. You get a front binder cover page, back cover, and even 2 spine cover options, in all 4 color schemes.
I figured everyone would want to organize their categories for the recipe book a little differently, so I made the covers for every category that I could think of in each color scheme and also left a set blank in case you want a category that I didn’t think of. The recipe section includes a recipe index that you can use either at the beginning of your recipe binder or at the beginning of each section of your recipe binder so you can always find the recipe you need, quickly and easily. Plus, it has printable recipe pages in 5 different designs in each of the color schemes. Once you’ve downloaded your recipe binder, you’ll need a few things to set it up. Of course you can go the frugal route and keep all your recipes together with binder clips or binder rings, but I recommend using the supplies below to make sure all of your favorite recipes are well-kept and safe from spills and kitchen accidents.
Size will depend on how many pages you want to print. If you just print the full planner, a 1-inch binder will do the trick. Depending on how you organize your planner, you’ll need 5-7 dividers. Grab some colorful pens for color-coding, and more importantly because they’re pretty and fun! Love them, especially when I’m in a brainstorming phase because if I decide against the idea, I can just peel the Post-it off and toss it. No crossing out or a messy-looking planner.
Great for if you’re working on a recipe and might need to make some adjustments. If you plan on actually using your recipe binder in the kitchen while you’re cooking, page protectors are a must have. That way you can be as messy a cook as you need to be without worrying about rendering your recipe unreadable. I think we’ve covered everything. It’s time to actually get your own recipe binder printables and get started!
