1. Print out the recipe card templates here. They are printed on front and back so be sure to make a test print on regular paper so you don’t waste your card stock.
a. Trim 3/4 of an inch from the top and bottom.
b. Trim 1/4 of an inch from the left and right.
c. Now cut in half both ways. You will be left with 4 recipe cards that are 4 inches wide and 4.75 inches tall.

a. Trim the width to your liking and trim the height so your words are on the bottom half of the card stock and you are left with a 1 inch tall tab.
b. Place your tab face up in the XYRON and pull the adhesive roll from the bottom and tear.
c. Smooth the adhesive with your fingers and remove the top portion, then the white backing.
d. Place the adhesive onto your 4 x 4.75 card and fold it in half on itself making sure it’s attached to the blank card. The tab should be attached to the short side of the card.

    One of my favorite shower gifts was from my mom. She sent out blank recipe cards out to friends and family with addressed& postage paid envelopes asking them to send me their favorite recipes to start my own collection. For weeks I received all these great letters in the mail with recipes and stories and then my mom gave me this great album at the shower to hold all my recipes. I have the most meaningful and fun cookbook ever! :)
