All About Recipe Cards!

Here's the scoop on the recipe cards. You need to pick out three recipes that fit the theme. Then make three 3"x5" recipe cards (if you really need more room, you can make a 2-part card in there if you need to) to fit the theme and maybe even coordinate with your apron! Craftiness is encouraged, with a few limits: no significant 3-D elements, and nothing projecting outside of the card's edges. Also remember; while the recipes all need to be kid-tested favorites, the recipe cards are for your swap partner, not their mini!

Here's some samples from previous swaps:

You can check previous swap posts for lots more ideas!

If you are not all that crafty on paper, it is totally fine to go find yourself some cute pre-made cards and use those. There are tons of cute 3x5 cards out there, I looked on etsy and found these adorable parisian motif cards, cute owl cards (no size listed though, so check before buying!), and my favorites, the Domestic Divas cards! If you want to print something out, I found a cool recipe card maker online that will format 3x5 cards for you (with art!) for free; or you can download free recipe card templates for MS Word.
