Wanted to share an easy and unique way
to make cute recipe cards for your personal file.
(By the way, the above recipe is my favorite apple pie recipe adapted
from Allrecipes.com. SO, SO good!!!)
*1st- Take photo for a background.
I like to use a photo of the baked good itself as a background.
It's a great reminder of what the finished product looks like. :)
You can also use cute kitchen items, retro aprons, landscapes,
your kids sweet faces, etc.
*Load photo on ipiccy.com. or photo editing site of your choice.
I love ipiccy. It's very user friendly and it's free.
Once your photo is loaded, you can use various tools that the
website offers to edit the photo. You can choose to change
it to black and white, to soften it, to correct red eye, and on and on.
*Once photo is edited as you want it, add text
to write your recipe on the photo.
Save the final photo recipe card when finished.
*Load the image on to a photo printing site.
I like to use Walgreens.com because it is convenient, user friendly
and you can almost always find a coupon for cheap prints.
*Order your cute recipe cards! (At Walgreens.com you
can have them printed at a store of your choice or have them
You can have them printed in various sizes to fit your own recipe box.
I have many recipes printed this way in my personal recipe card box.
I have also printed these out in the past to enclose in a card
for a new bride. You could also attach them to a baked good
that you are giving to a friend or loved one.
