Free Printable Recipe Cards

free printable recipe cardsA free set of three 4×6 printable recipe cards incorporating vintage style into the template designs. Easily create your own custom recipe cards.

Hours of time are wasted by the home cook unless she has some catalog system which enables her to locate recipes quickly. A card reference system is an invaluable tool. Recipes can be added at any time. When one card is filled another can be put in its place. If a card becomes worn or torn, it can be copied and replaced by a new one. The cards can be arranged according to the alphabet so that recipes are easy to find. It is a good idea to write the title of the recipes with a different font or color from the recipe itself so that the various recipe titles may be more easily recognized.
