Idea is for 3x5 index cards, which some people still use ;). You can put the card in the top in the slot so you can see it while you are making whatever it is. I made dividers foir the inside, it is a bit tricky since thin plywood is expensive, not sure what the best solution is. This time I made it with paper and a printer, using spray adhestive to glue to thin pieces of chipboard. I cut it on the cricut though and not the laser.
Very nice looking! The place to hold the card you are reading is a great touch. I wonder if the 1/16" or so heavy cardboard would do for those dividers as they would not get the abuse that the box would and could be sealed with acrylic spray if extra strength is desired.
Totally agree! I think people though cooking with devices would be a panacea and all it really did was smudge your phone. I sometimes do cook with my phone and I find it very inconvenient. I keep having to put int he passcode with dirty fingers…ug.
This is very nice! Kind of you to share! I have a couple of my Mom’s boxes, and I always had a little pouch of like 25 cards for myself.
When I started collecting out of magazines or from people, I had this HUGE stack. Finally resorted to buying four 2" binders, and broke those up into categories each with a different color of cover slid into the clear windows. Then put them in sleeves. Which was a huge effort, but, was so much better than going through my 14" stack of papers every time I wanted to find a recipe. This has worked out great for me.
