Recipe boxes are becoming a lost art. I still have one, but there are many cooks these days who keep their recipes on digital files. Most of the recipe cards in my box are like old friends, and have been around for a long time. There aren’t very many new ones, and I’d like to change that. To help the process, I made this set of free printable recipe cards exclusively for OSP email subscribers. Recipe cards are somewhat hard to find, but not anymore!

This set consists of five different designs, one for each season of the year, plus a card that is plain, with no design. They are individual jpeg files, so you can print all of them, or just a few. 

Best Tip for Printing Recipe Cards

The cards will measure 4 x 6 if you do this one thing: you must size your page to 8 x 10 in your print program. Choose 8 x 10, and your recipe cards will be perfect.

    Thank you for these cards and pages. In an era where many are scanning in recipes and throwing out the old books and cards, I still prefer to use the hard copies with smudges, dog-eared and even some fading. there are some from my Mom and Mom-in-law and others who have now passed on. Seeing their handwriting is a comfort and brings memories of well loved food shared around the kitchen table.

    I have saved the cards for now and would like to re-size into 3.5 x 5 when available.

    Blessings.

  2. I really like your recipe cards, but my recipe box is VERY old school; my cards are 3×5. Any printing tips for resizing to 3×5?
    I see in the comments that others are asking the same question, but I don’t see a response; does that mean it’s “guess & check”?!!
    Thanks for the lovely graphics!

      Hi Colleen…I’m sorry for the delay in answering the questions about converting to a 3 x 5. I have been trying to make it work, but so far, I can’t get them to come out to the correct size. I will need to completely remake them, and I just haven’t had time. It’s on my list though. Thank you for your patience, Ann

  3. These are beautiful! I also have a recipe box filled with recipe cards from my mother, my sisters, aunts and cousins! I love the connection their handwritten recipe cards provide. Thank you for the beautiful cards…what a lovely handwritten gift they will make.

  4. These are so beautiful! I agree a handwritten recipe card is a lost art. I have several in my MIL hand that I cherish. Wish I have some from my mom and grandmothers. I’m going to give each of the students in my cooking class a set of these and have them ask an older relative to write out a favorite recipe for them. Thank you for the incentive💕

    Ann, I have two recipe boxes which I love very much. One box was my mother’s that I got when she passed away. Most of my cards have the date & name of the person from whom I received the recipe. Like you, they are my old friends & are very special to me. Thanks so much for the lovely cards–they’re beautiful.
    Did I miss something? I read where Elizabeth moved into a new house. I enjoyed the posts where you told about helping her put her little house in order. I was not getting my emails from you for several weeks , so if you posted about her new house–I missed it. I can look in the archives & read if you could tell me the date of the posts IF you did write anything. Thanks so much. Cookie

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Cookie…I have not shared Elizabeth’s new house. I’m not sure I will, she’s more private now than when she was younger! Thank you for asking though…

  6. I love these! I still use recipe cards as well. I still have some from my mother and grandmother in my recipe box.

  7. Thank you so much for these beautiful recipe cards. I still love using recipe cards and cookbooks! I can’t wait to use these…thanks again.

  8. Ann,I think somehow we are related ! I have my recipe box and cards from almost 50 years ago and still refer back to them !!

  9. Love the recipe cards. Can’t wait to use them. Could you please tell me where you got the scissors that is in so many of your posts? I would love to have one like that if they are available anywhere.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Rachel…those scissors are vintage that I picked up on eBay several years ago. New versions are available on Amazon. Here is an affiliate link to something very similar: https://amzn.to/36KX0xU. If you want vintage ones, just search “bonsai scissors” or “Japanese scissors” on eBay or Etsy. I hope this helps!

    I love my recipe box! I have handwritten recipe cards that were my moms and my grandmother’s. It warms my heart when I use these recipes. Plus nothing beats holding a recipe card as opposed to using my iPad. There are times I use my iPad for recipes but I still prefer using a recipe card. After I try a recipe and like it, I then write out a card for it!
    Yes, I’m a recipe card girl!
    Plus I love cook books! I recently sorted through some cookbooks and had some I no longer wanted but were really nice. I asked my girls and nieces and they looked at me like I was crazy. “We get recipes on line” was their responses. Oh well!
    (My youngest daughter picked out at least three and all of the ones that were her grandmother’s. She has her eye on my recipe box!) 😜

  11. I know what you mean when you say that your recipe box is like an old friend! I still use mine, and probably will continue to do so, even though I have recipes in Pinterest and in computer files. There is just something comforting about reaching for the box and finding the recipe I’m thinking of. A number of them are from my mother and grandmother, so memories are a big reason why I keep it. Thank you for the cards.

  12. So any idea what paper size I should set if I want to make the cards 3×5? TIA

      I would like to know how to convert to a 3 x 5 card also

        1. So I have been fiddling around with resizing and figured out how to get it pretty close to 3×5. open the downloaded file in Paint on your computer. Select the resize menu, choose percentage. input 45 for horizontal and 40 percent for vertical. Then Ok. that brings the size very close to 3×5.
