DIY: Photo Recipe Cards

This one’s for those of you who love to cook! I’m sure you guys have a bunch of online recipes bookmarked on your phone or recipe books lying around. How about trying something different and making your own Photo Recipe cards? They are super personalized and special and doesn’t require much time to make. It’s also a fun way to stay organized and it makes each recipe way easier to find. 

All you have to do is print the pictures of the dish, jot down the steps and ingredients required and you are done!


materials used

1) Sketchbook paper / Plain cards
2) Photos of dishes
3) Recipes
4) Glue
5) Scissors


I’m using sketchbook paper as example but you can get plain cards that are readily available at craft/book shops for this DIY.

First, I cut the sketchbook papers into half. Mine measures 11.5cm x 18cm, you can customize it base on your preferences.


Recipes and photos

I then printed out my recipes and photos of the dishes. (I printed the recipes on separate pieces of paper but you can choose to print it straight onto the card)
