Recipe Greeting Cards

It’s fun to photograph food and then share with the recipe on a greeting card. I have given you three possibilities.

Recipe Greeting card

Print your photo on front of card and the recipe inside. Note the card is folded so the recipe is on the top half when opened. Or you can print it on the back if you want.

Gift Recipe Share

You may give bread, cookies or other baked goods at the holidays. Include a card with the photo and recipe. Print on a single 5×7 sheet front and back. (not a foldable card).

Greeting card with separate photo

If you don’t print your own cards, you can use a separate print and tack it onto the card surface. I added a title underneath the photo, but you can hand write it or leave text-free. The recipe can be printed on the inside on your regular desktop printer.

2018 Calendar How-to

 

I love making calendars each year. They are very similar to greeting cards which is my first passion.  There are many ways to produce calendars, here are a few:

Easiest- Print one photo or collage on 8 1/2 x 11 with all the months printed. You can download the template from Etsy creators or use an online printer such as Shutterfly or Vistaprint for example.

Fairly easy – upload 13 photos to Shutterfly or other online printer and choose a format. This can be pricey ($15-25 each)

One Sheet – a 16×20 poster available online (runs $22.99 at Shutterfly)

My favorite – I create *12  5×7 sheets for each month and print them through a discount online printer as they seem to do just fine at this size.  Then I give or sell them with a 5×7 acrylic magnet that goes on people’s refrigerators or any metal surface. It is easy to change each month as the year goes by.  The magnets are available in other sizes too through http://www.pfile.com. (order more than 12 and they are about $3 each with shipping) – so your total on this project is your time and under $10.  I either order clear boxes from http://www.clearbags.com (extra cost) or slip the 12 sheets into an envelope.

*this year I am using the templates from Lil Owls Texture Club (you need to join). They are very well done and allow customization.  See samples above. Etsy also has many calendar template creators.

 

This is a great way to share your photos and creativity!
