Recipe Binder Printables


My husband has had Photoshop on his computer for as long as I can remember, and I am just now starting to experiment with it. I have been wanting a recipe binder for a while, but haven't been able to find one that works well for me. With all of the new recipes I am making this Fall, I was in desperate need of some way to save all my favorite recipes. So, I decided to create my very own recipe binder pages, using Photoshop. Here is what I came up with:




I spent so much time on them, that I decided I better show off my work AND let all of you benefit from, too!
So without further ado, I present to you: MY FIRST FREE PRINTABLES!
(To use, click on the desired picture, right click, and save to your desktop to print)

Cover Page and Section Covers:





Recipe Pages:




Now I just need to find some motivation (and time) to hand-write all of my recipes onto these beautiful pages for my binder to be complete!

Does anyone else use a recipe binder? If so, I hope you try out these fun printables!

Happy Cooking!

  3. I love these - they are just so gorgeous!

    I'm having one problem though - when I save the image via right click it is quite small, so it is super blurry when I enlarge it above a few inches. I'm not hugely computer savvy.. I wonder if I am doing it incorrectly??

    1. If you click on the image, it will take you to a new page with jut the image. Then I would suggest zooming in all the way (I think you can just click it again). Then right click it to save! Enjoy!

  8. Super Adorable Melanie!! Thank you for sharing your talents!! I was wondering, it looks like you have a table of contents page pictured with what looks like graphics that could be used as tabs, but don't see it as an available download. Am I just totally missing it on the page? We want to use these for our young womens group to help them get their own recipe binders started, and thought the idea of using tabs would be super fun.

    1. Thanks for your interest Michelle! Unfortunately, I hand made the table of contents page by printing out the backgrounds and words and then using a fancy hole punch I have to make the fun border. I then just glued it all on to a piece of white paper.

      If you email me, I can send you the files and you could cut them however you like to use them as tabs!
      my email is: melaniegetsmarried@gmail.com

      I look forward to hearing from you!

  9. Hi I love your printables as I am putting together a book for each of my kids. I too am having the same problem as a previous comment....all are super small except for the Recipes cover page and the recipe card page that matches that color (mint green). When you double click to enlarge they are blurry to print. The files are much different in size. Was wondering if there is a solution on your part to resave as bigger files the same way the other 2 are? Thanks in advance for your help.

    1. All files should be the same size, as I saved them and added them on here in all the same file sizes.

      I just took a look at it again and I right clicked over the picture and chose to "open in a new tab". Then I was able to click on it once to enlarge to the original size and save it. I tried it on multiple colors, so I hope it works for you too.

      If for some reason it is still being silly, you can shoot me an email at melaniegetsmarried@gmail.com and I would be happy to send you the files through email.

      I hope it works out, it sounds like you are making something very special for your children!

  12. Do you have/ can you make blank ones (that do not say recipes or main dishes, exc) with those backgrounds? I like to divide my main dishes into categories such as pork, chicken, exc and I would love to have just plain print to divide them. These are beautiful I am making a binder for my boyfriends Gma.
