It may not look like a lot of magazines but they were taking up a lot of space and I didn't even want everything in them.
So, I bought a presentation binder from Target and used some page protectors that I already had.
Then I went through each magazine and pulled out the pages that had recipes that I was interested in making. It made me kind of hungry! I organized them a little bit and inserted each page into the page protectors and then into the binder. I put main dishes first and then desserts. I didn't use tabs but I'm sure as this grows I will need to do that.
Doesn't this soup look yummy? Just had to share. I will say that going through these made me come up with some items to add to my upcoming week's menu.
I cropped the title of one of the magazines and put it on a strip of scrapbook paper for the side of the binder.
Finally, I took one of the covers and put it on a piece of scrapbook paper for the cover of my binder. Oh, and I added some stickers, just for kicks.
I'm so excited to have this little project done! It didn't take that much time either, which is always a plus.
Now I just have to work on my family organization binder (I've gotten some good tips on how to do that from other blog friends) and my inspiration binder, which will have cut outs of pieces I'd like for my home, decorating ideas, crafts, etc. Hopefully that will happen sooner than later.
