DIY Recipe Cards from Scrapbook Paper

I have oodles of scrapbook paper in my stash of crafty things. I’ve spent some time scrapbooking in the past, but I’m not good at it. Also, I don’t like the pressure of it.  Sounds funny I know, but scrapbooking makes my heart pound and my palms sweat, but not in a good way.  Too much pressure to make a perfect page.  Cut a picture…are you kidding me!?  And how can I possibly choose just the right photo to make a page?  Ackk! Just too much for me.

So what to do with all my leftover beautiful paper?  It’s too pretty to be wasted sitting at the bottom of my closet.  Then I found myself needing more recipe cards, and I didn’t feel like buying any, so why not make them!  So made them I did.

How to make recipe cards with scrapbook paper:

  • Each 12 x 12 sheet will make 6 recipe cards at 6 x 3 inches.
  • I used a paper cutter to make cut out these cards.  So simple.

    Great idea! I’m another one of those with tons of scrapbook paper but (after several attempts) I don’t scrapbook. These would make great gifts–filing this one away for later! Did you use really heavy paper or did you back it with some cardstock?
