Recipe Card Free Printable

Recipe Card Free Printable | Instant download to use for gifts, bridal showers or personal use. I have a list of blog post ideas that I go to when I’m stuck…or feeling uninspired. This Recipe Card Free Printable was on that list. I have wanted to make this for a long time so I finally buckled down and figured it out. It was a little tricky but with some trial and error I was able to make it exactly 4 x 6 inches.

All you have to do is download and print. In your print program, whatever it is, just make sure that you choose the “Fit to page” or “Full page” option. Don’t size it down. I recommend smooth, high quality card stock. Cut just inside the black border. If you have a steady hand, scissors will work fine. I used a large pair and it went very quickly. A small paper cutter would work well too.

I know recipe cards are becoming a thing of the past. Many cooks now keep their recipes in binders. I plan to make a full sheet recipe card that will fit in any 3-ring binder…and print on regular size paper. That will be coming soon!

As you all know, I have been in a period of transition in pretty much every aspect of my life. I’ve been thinking about how I spend my time…and if I’m spending it wisely. I’ve come to the conclusion that I have to start working smarter…not harder. I’m in the very beginning phase of trying to figure this all out but I have a few ideas that might actually work in my favor…and in yours. Stay tuned!

    These are lovely but I’m looking for the snickerdoodle bread recipe. When I click on the bread recipe I’m being directed to the recipe cards. Please help

    Hello Ann,

    I’ve signed up a few days ago and already you surprise me with some of your lovely printables.
    Those recepicards will surely come in handy because I am planning to make plum jam.
    I live in Belgium near the coast and my creativity lays in gardening and vegetable gardening.
    About four years ago I started to grow our own organic vegetables. They taste faboulous and are so healthy.
    It has become a real passion for me and it’s a joy being able to share all these goodies with family and friends.
    It’s a pity it’s not possible to share some with you in return for your gorgeous printables and other stuff, but I thank you with all my hart for everything I can enjoy.

    Love the new blog design. It’s simple, pretty and classic. Lori Swesringen :)

  6. These are beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m a recipe card gal and treasure those passed down by my grandmother.

  7. Thank you for your lovely recipe cards. I treasure the recipe cards as well as the postcards of my departed family members and friends. Eager to view your upcoming posts.

  8. Thank you for the beautiful cards…you always inspire me. Have a blessed day!

  9. Thank you for the recipe cards. I love the design. It applies to all categories and looks elegant. I use cards, binders and the computer, so I’ll look forward to the binder version. Thank you, again.

  10. Hi Ann – So…I am in the same flux….I have been working on this for some time as have my close friends who are also recently retired. I was a Kindergarten teacher for 23 years….apparently I retired way too early because I still long for my job and can’t seem to figure out how to have a day that is filled with what is important to me. We just came back from a lovely trip to San Diego and whilst there I made a list of things to do. Somehow…it isn’t full enough of doing things for others. I guess that’s what is missing even tho, I play with my grandkids almost daily, work in their classrooms weekly, take classes in ceramics and water aerobics, sew, garden,…..I think is is the …..enough..

  11. Love the recipe Cards, thank you.
    Have a Blessed week

  12. The recipe cards are lovely. You are an inspiration to all of us who follow your blog.

    Dear Ann,
    Such pretty recipe cards which sometimes are hard to find. I love having recipes hand written in loved one’s handwriting such as my mother’s as well as my grandmother’s. I hope one day my girls will cherish passed down favorite recipes in my handwriting. Love all your inspiration!

  14. Thank you for the lovely recipe cards. I still love having a recipe card in front of me when I bake. These are perfect. I still have a wooden box that holds two rows of cards. Some of the cards are very old, with notations made by my kids like” my favorite chocolate chip cookies”

  15. He Anne
    Well I need you to come and sort me out. I need to kick start my blog just feel I lead a boring life.
    Love your posts

    L-O-V-E these recipe cards!! I was thinking about all the computer paper I have & wanted to condense the pile & put it in my large vintage clip, but never got around to it, or never liked the ones I saw. These are perfect & so pretty!! Thanks AGAIN for the beautiful prints you share to your readers!!

  17. The recipe cards are so handy, thank you!!

  18. I still love getting a recipe from someone on a card, written. It is great to see their handwriting years after getting them. I have some from my Nana that are 70 years old. I love your blog. Thank again.

  19. The recipe cards are perfect! Almost all my favorite recipes are kept online now, and I have nightmares about losing them forever. This is the perfect time to transfer them to paper for safe-keeping.
    I can’t wait to hear your ‘work smart’ ideas. I don’t have a blog but I could sure use some help in how I spend the non-career parts of my days.
    Thank you!

  20. Hi Ann… I love recipe cards!! I place them on a sheet of paper, slide that into a plastic protector and put it in a three ring binder. When I need the recipe I take it out of the binder and if it gets soiled it can be wiped off!
    The cards are adorable and I will for sure print a few out.
    Thanks and have a beautiful Sunday!

  21. Thank you for the Recipe Cards!!! I have lots of recipes passed down thru our families. Some are on cards in the family members hand writing. I cherish those. Still scraps of paper are harder to keep organized.
    Wow, I said the word organized! Now, that’s scary! Very Scary!
    I look forward to putting the recipe paper scraps onto your cards!
    Thank you!

  23. I still prefer recipe cards, they’re so handy and easy to have in front of you!
