Hanging Recipe Holder

Never again will you have to worry about losing that recipe card.  Make this hanging recipe holder, using the eCraft electronic die cutting machine by Craftwell, and holiday cooking is as easy as pie.  These also make great gifts to give a teacher.

  5. You can add some stability by double siding the leaves and adding a small wire to the inside once your leaves are dry.

Response to the size of the pocket...you could layer the vinyl by using 2 sheets of 9x11.5 and then lay a 9 x 4 or 5 inch piece to the bottom 1/2 then apply the bias/ribbon. This would give you a place for what ever size you use. As I have both recipe card size and full sheet sizes, this would solve for both. Decorate both sides and you can just flip it to the side you need. ALSO I would add velcro to the ends of the bias tape loop to be able to us on my cabinet (I have closed handles rather than knobs). or just leave ends long enough to tie.

Poor instructions. What is leaf svg's anyway?

charlottea A leaf svg is a special file used by expensive die-cutting machines that's something for people who have more money to spend than I do susansdavis I agree these are very poorly written instructions As to the size I'd make it the size of most of my recipes which aren't on cards at all but on full sheets of paper X inches so about X inches for the sheets of vinyl in my case If you have recipe cards instead then allow about half an inch larger than your cards in each direction both height and width If you make the holder the size of your largest recipe cards smaller cards might be used in the holder too but removing the card from the holder might be complicated if the holder is as large as mine would need to be and if you attempted to use a much smaller cardRead More in it - such as putting a X card in a full sheet holder IMO the creators of these specialized crafts have excluded many people from making their designs by not providing a template that we could use Example for hand-cutting the leaves to make the item without purchasing the danged machine

Why isn't the vinyl listed in the materials section? What type of vinyl is used? What size? I assume a pocket is being made for a recipe card to slide into, but the directions do not make that clear. Great idea, poor directions.

This is one of those "Why didn't I think if that"s I have covered the little cards. But this is great! Especially for someone like me that doesn't see well and gets flour everywhere! Thanks for sharing ;)
