.:Summer of Love Recipe Cards - Spool and Spoon:.

Hey everyone! It's Jess from Spool and Spoon, again. When I was here in May, I shared Teacher Appreciation Day gift tag printables which would be just as perfect for the end of school festivities this month! May was a busy month at Spool and Spoon, complete with tons of awesome projects and recipes: IKEA dish towel market tote bags, a wooden plank welcome mat, and the only sangria recipe you'll ever need in your arsenal. If you haven't checked those favorites out, I'd love to have you stop by and say hi!

This June I am sharing printable Summer of Love Recipe Cards.

The recipe card is sized at 4x6 which means you can print two out per page of paper! 
I just love summertime! Be it weddings, showers, or family reunions, there is always something to celebrate and with a ton of get togethers come lots of food. Maybe I have really great dishes (haha, I wish!) but I tend to hear "you need to give me that recipe!" quite often. Rather than scribbling the recipe onto a scrap of paper, now I have printable recipe cards at my constant disposal.

You can fill these babies out to store your favorite recipes for personal use, but I think these work best as a keepsake or gift-giving item!
  • When inviting guests to a shower, send a blank recipe card with instructions to jot down their favorite recipe for the bride or mom-to-be. At the shower, collect the cards and organize them in an album to gift to the guest of honor.
  • Document your kids favorite recipes as a future gift.
  • For a family reunion, have everyone complete the cards ahead of time and create little recipe books as  favors. 
  • For new neighbors, include a bunch of blank recipe cards in a basket alongside wine, homemade goodies, kitchen gadgets, a grocery store gift card, etc.
Jess is a crafty semi-newlywed living with her husband and two fur babies in a little townhouse outside of Philadelphia. She started Spool and Spoon in 2012 to document her creative endeavors and to counterbalance her day job as a corporate recruiter. Jess is a DIY girl through and through; she'd prefer her camera, sketchbook, and sewing machine over most anything else. Throughout any given week, you can find a mashup of printablestutorials, and recipes on her blog. Check it out!
