This is a cookbook I made for my sister for this past christmas, yeah I know i'm a little behind on posting my projects!  I had bought a set of matching paper and bought the rings and tab dividers as a set at a scrapbook store, typed out some recipes, and tada!  The creation was born!

opened view of paper, colors, and dividers


closed view, showing the binder rings


flipped open view


top view, putting my hands to work holding it up!

That looks really great.

I would use the binder loops to hang it from a hook in my kitchen to keep it handy. Smiley

Thank you both!  I never thought of hanging it on a hook  Shocked I'll have to tell my sister, she's got hooks above her counter!  I'm glad I have smart people around me cause my brain doesn't think sometimes, lol.

Oh deffinately making myself one of these when I have the time! I was looking for a better, prettier way to keep my recipes rather than a binder and this is perfect!

What a cute idea!  I could see doing a couple different categories and then putting them into one of those tins that you decorate!

wow thanks everyone!  I didn't realize I was still getting comments on this.  I am way over due to make more of these, Christmas will hit me before I am ready, it always does, and sewingcybermom, I am so glad I could give you a recipe you could use, haha.  There is some yummy stuff in there!  I actually have a recipe blog I am posting that recipe tomorrow, haha.

What an adorable idea... I keep my recipes in a binder with plastic pockets but it would be such a cute idea to make a little scrapbook of my favourite go-tos. I might have to steal your idea...

This just screams cute and organised.  I have lately been thinking of something similar to record my stocks of what I have, don't have, need, want etc etc and this would be super cute and not too big.  I would however change the binding on mine to ball chains instead of hinge-rings but that's just me.  Anyways well done on what you have created here.  Super cute and I love the colours and how the whole thing looks ~ you should be pleased Cheesy Smiley
