Good Idea: Printable Recipe Card Templates

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Do you use recipe cards? Do you keep them organized in a box, maybe alphabetically or by subject? Or maybe you like to copy a favorite recipe onto a card and attach it to a whisk or a clutch of wooden spoons as a housewarming gift. If so, then this roundup is for you!

We’re not certain yet if the internet has killed the recipe card. While many people use online sources for discovering and managing their recipes, there still seems to be a place for the personal recipe card — especially for gift giving. And when you can easily download and customize them from shops on Etsy and other craft marketplaces, the possibilities are endless.

Here’s a few of our favorite recipe card templates. The way these work is that the designer offers an inexpensively-priced download. You pay your money and then the store sends you a link to a download. You are now free to fill out these editable Word documents or PDF files with your own recipes, framed in by the designer’s cute graphics. This is great for those of us who prefer to type out recipes rather than handwrite them; it’s often much faster and neater to do it this way.
