Cute Recipe Cards As Hostess Gifts

cute recipe cards template and printed packRecipe cards are fun because they do not take place when you are cooking.

Nothing feels more caring than a written note in the digital age. If you looking to add a personal touch, you can bring a handwritten pack of your best recipes as an hostess gift.

Look no further and check out these 4 recipe card sets to do it in style. First, the DIY print project:

+ Ez of Creature Comforts designed yesterday a set of recipe cards with matching envelope seals. The best thing is that are free. Ez publishes her template design online for your own use.

+ Etsy seller wildolive sells at $5 her 16 3×5″ card designs as a pdf file. Her design has a whimsical touch.

Then, the paper versions:

+ If you need plenty, go for the pack of 20 Fork and Spoon Recipe Cards by WhiskerGraphics. I like the deep red color. This $8 set comes in a cellophane sleeve. Add a ribbon and a little charm to finish up the gift wrapping.

+ Each of the Bite me recipe card by TerriTaylorDesign is trimmed out by hand, making each card slightly unique. The set contains 12 ink jet printed off-white cards. As many Etsy’s products, the set comes wrapped with raffia. Price: $6 for pack of 12

    I am so glad, one of my friend told me she bought the cards by wildolive.

  2. This would also be a great addition to a gift basket at Christmas time for friends or even included as a gift for a baby shower for the mom-to-be

  3. what a great idea for a hostess gift!

  4. I am Kim’s friend who bought the cards from Wildolive. I have to say that I am impressed. It will make a fun hostess gift. I intend, once I have recipes printed, to laminate them, punch a whole at the top left corner and put a ring to keep them together. Laminating them allow to print on regular paper and then you get a more sturdy card that can be used over and over again in the kitchen.
