I’m not a fan of cooking, so keeping all my favorite Thanksgiving recipes together in one place has turned out to be quite handy for me. The binding system I used allows for additions and subtractions. I used the computer and printer to make pages for this book, but you could also use existing recipes that you have on cards.
For the cover, I used rubber stamps, and I used a punch for the pumpkin.
It will stand up on it’s own! Here’s a tip; rub the wax from a candle over your recipe cards and they will resist any spatters that may come their way.
This type of binding is very handy for other types of projects too. Are you familiar with Levenger? They have sold this system for years.
I own a couple of different punches for this system. One is a Rollabind, and one is a RollaPunch. The discs come in several different sizes to accomodate different thicknesses, and they come in many different colors as well. I use cheapo index cards in my projects a lot.
You just slip a piece of paper in, and lower the top, just like a 3 hole punch. The fact that you can change out the pages makes the fear of a blank white page vanish.
This one is much more affordable, but the process is a little more entailed.
Add horizontal or vertical.
Make “book marks” out of any type of paper you want. Punch business cards and keep them all together or with particular documents. It makes organization much more fun!!
Here is a binder I made out of leather scraps and cardboard.
You can punch scraps of paper you may have jotted a note on and put it into your binder so you don’t have to search for it later.
I made tabbed dividers and used rubber stamps to decorate them.
It doesn’t take long to create either of these projects. Do you think being able to just punch a piece of note paper and add it to your binder would help you stay organized? Do you have a similar organization tip?
