Organize Your Noms

Posted on April 18, 2012 and tagged DIY, Favourites

So it's been about 2 months since my husband and I have decided to go vegan. I won't get into the 'why' right now, but I will say that it's been going great. I feel very focused, I have more energy and I feel refuled after meals instead of sluggish. I needed to completely change the way I cook though, and that means discarding basically every recipe in my repitoire.

I have found the Internet (obs) to be a great resource for new recipes. My favourite sites, just to name a few, are:

Here's the tie-in you've been waiting for: I designed some printable recipe cards to keep all my new recipes organized. And you can have them too! Click here to download the free printable PDF. Just print, cut along the crop marks, and start writing. The size of the cards are 5" x 3".

You guys know how I love Sharpies right? Well I grabbed my Sharpie and went a little nuts on this box. Also, I guess I forgot how big recipe cards are and bought a GIANT BOX. I don't know what I was thinking.

But it actually turned out to be a good idea. I used some cardboard to section off the back of the box and now I have a place for a notebook, pen, my Sharpie, and magazine clippings.

I think I had a little too much fun decorating this box, but it was a steal for $1 at the Dollar Store.

I used an Ultra Fine Point Sharpie and drew diagonal lines down the sides. Then, I made a variation of a cross hatch pattern on the lid using short diagonal lines in alternating directions. Lastly, I finised off the lid by drawing triangles around the edges using a Fine Point Sharpie. Don't worry about getting super straight lines, I like the hand-drawn look.

Hope you enjoy the recipe cards! If you like printables, click here for a free thank you card I designed in February. Do you have any ideas for my next free printable?
