I have a love/hate relationship with how I store my handwritten recipes. I used to have them written on 4"x6" cards and kept them in a box. But then I would add in pieces of paper with recipes scribbled on them, pages torn out of magazines with recipes to try and after awhile, the box was stuffed and unmanageable.
So, I came up with this idea.
I bought inexpensive 5"x8" index cards that are blank and also the dividers. I covered the dividers with different colored cardstock, trimming the excess with an x-acto knife. Then I covered the front with a patterned paper. I punched two holes so that I could use big binder rings to hold it together.
Inside I added a bit of rubber stamping to the fronts of each divider and also to each blank recipe page.
So far, so good with this system. Quick, easy and inexpensive.
