DIY: Recipes Book

I thought I would share a fun and easy recipes book I made a few weeks ago. It’s my first tutorial, and I don’t exactly have a high end camera. But here’s a shot! I hope it makes sense and you like!

Grab these materials. Paper colors and letter choices are flexible.

Your cover sheet should be a thicker weight and be double-sided. Cut the cover 7 inches width wise.

Fold your sheet as shown below leaving 1-2 inches uneven. Do this for the opposite side as well. Your cover should look like a rectangular U after folding is complete.

Next cut the pages of your recipes book at 5 inches width. My sheets were 10 inches length. I used a total of 9 sheets.

Next, punch holes! I line my hole puncher against the edges of where the folds are to ensure they were even. Then I took a pencil and punched holes into the cover.

(The instructions for this particular meal are folded up and kept in the pocket because I felt they were too long to write out.)
