Recently when I was going through cookbooks for ideas, I wanted to have something pretty to mark the recipes I plan to try. Since I am trying not to spend $$$, I decided to create cookbook markers myself. They look so much prettier than scraps of ripped paper I normally would use. Using them also makes my daily chore of cooking visually more appealing.
I have made them into a free printable for you to download, print on card stock and the cut.
Print out a few sets. One for you and another set to give to a foodie friend. I printed this set on ridged paper and wrapped a paper strip around the set.
To create the wrapping strip:
- Cut a 3/4″ x 6″ strip out of card-stock.
- Cut a 1/2″ slit on the bottom edge 3/4″ from the end.
- Cut another 1/2″ slit on the other end, but this time from the top edge.
- Wrap around the cut-out markers and place the slits into each other to close.
When you have a favorite recipe in a cookbook, create a card for your recipe box with the name of the recipe, the book, and the page. It will save you lots of time trying to find which cookbook the recipe was in when you need it.
