Personalised Recipe Cards make anyone's cooking days seem brighter!
"Lentils are friendly —
the Miss Congeniality of the bean world."
If you have some heirloom recipes or some family favourites, why not make up your own personal cook book, album or box with some like these?
There are plenty of reasons to use this idea as a delightful and practical gift for someone too. For instance, I thought of making a batch of never-fail recipes up for a new bride recently, or for sending with your son or daughter as they leave the family home, or to show a grandparent how special their tastes of the kitchen are, and you may have even more ideas about how to use them. You're bound to treasure them even more once you have created a scrapped version of your favourites!
When you start making your collection, something else to think about is the colour of the food you are going to scrap about. Here I used my savoury red lentil recipe, so I chose a rich red brown cardstock, rich brown ribbon and brads, and found rub ons in the colours that matched the cardstock and even the ingredient labels I photographed.
I can just imagine how pretty doing recipe cards in pink and yellow and lilac would be for a little girl's birthday cake recipe! A picture of a birthday cake on the card would really make it wonderful.
Here's what I used:

Once you have made one of these, it is likely you will want to have more. What a good excuse to make a decorative box or album to keep them all safe in!
Enjoy making your personalised recipe cards!
