Taking my non-craftiness into account, I am pretty proud of the recipe book I just made for myself. My recipe box has always been a disaster -- it's full of scribbled notes on all kinds of paper, printouts, smudged recipe cards etc. etc. etc.
I found an old photo album that I've had since my wedding and decided to transfer all my recipes into it. First of all, the title makes me happy:
I made tabs out of some old dividers I had from school and attached them with scrapbook adhesive for quick-flip referencing.
I also have a lot of recipes on double-sided 81/2 x 11 paper...you know, hand-outs from relief society activities and things like that. So I just slid those into page protecters and clipped them into the binder in the appropriate place. Originally, I was planning on copying them onto 3x5 cards so everything would be uniform...but as I said...I just don't have a lot of patience...so page protectors did the trick!
Now I can see 8 recipes at a time and they are all organized! I will never rummage through my crappy recipe box again. I know it looks pretty ghetto, but coming from a non-crafter, I gotta say I am pretty pleased.
