Blank Printable Recipe Dividers

I just had a customer request blank tabs for creating a recipe book with her mini binder, and thought that was a great idea.  So, I’m including them here for you  also so you can print and write in your own recipe headings.  These could also work great for organizing craft ideas, family planners, lesson plans, or whatever else you might want dividers for, since you can decide what to put in these tabs.  Just open these up, print them onto regular card stock paper, cut them out,  insert into mini page protectors and stick them in our oilcloth mini binders, or any half sheet binders.  My labeled dividers (pictured below) are available here.  Hope they are useful to you!

Free Printables and Family Organizers

Some of my oilcloth binders and binder covers available on Etsy

After my post on how to use my oilcloth mini binders (8 1/2 in x 5 1/2 in) to create your own recipe collections and weekly planners, I figured I’d be remiss not to do a post on how to use my normal size (8 1/2 in x 11 in) oilcloth three-ring binder for organizational benefits as well.  I’ve seen some great downloadable planner pages on Pinterest lately (yes, I’m the latest victim of yet another social networking time warp, but I do love it) and thought I’d share them here.

Download some of these freebies and use page protectors to organize them inside one of my oilcloth three-ring binders to create your own family organizers, menu planners, calendars and more.  Of course, you don’t have to use one of my binders, but it would make organizing a little more bright and cheery. (:  Also, many of these pages could make great Christmas gifts for loved ones this year organized neatly inside a binder!

Here are a few free downloads I found:

Recipe Disaster

My Messy Recipe Collection

You’d think that as someone who makes binder covers and markets them for organizing recipes, I’d do better than this organizing my recipes.  Maybe I need to practice what I preach and put one of my own recipe binders in use around my kitchen. (:
