Love that idea! In fact, one of the bees did it, I think, for a bridal shower she was hosting.

You can pick up really inexpensive recipe cards at Michael’s in their $1 section, or request personalized ones on Etsy. I make recipe cards all the time for myself/friends, it’s pretty simple!

I love that idea!  I might just have to borrow it if that’s okay ๐Ÿ™‚

 

It probably wouldn’t be to hard to use have 4″ x 6″ or 5″ x 7″ cards printed with a line on top for the name of the recipe,  the line underneath for the name of the recipe giver, and then lines for the ingredients.  You could have lines on the back for the actual directions.  You could include decorations around the edges etc as well.

 

If you’re interested in creating them yourself, consider contacting a nearby university to see if they have a printing department.  I used my school’s professional printing service for my STD cards and they were very help and they looked great.  They even cut the paper that didn’t have any text on it.  The cost was really inexpensive.  

 

I would probably try to find the box first to make sure the recipe cards fit inside!  You’ll have to let us know if you do this idea and how they turn out!

Yes! Check Etsy! There are some sellers with adorable recipe cards and boxes, and lots of others who will design them based on your colors, etc.

I know this is totally random, but take a look at your local Borders book store.  They had the cutest recipe box with the cutes recipe cards, and I found it on clearance.  You never know you may find something cool!

A friend of mine made one for me out of a simple tin, scrapbook paper and some embelishments. Turned out super cute.

Kinda like this, but mine doesn’t have a handle:
