Ring-Bound Food Journals

Food journals are a great place to store your favourite recipes, information and photographs of interesting dishes you’ve tasted and magazine clippings of tasty dishes and unique recipes. Here’s how to make your own.

You will need: Cardboard, paper, glue, two rings (from keyrings), fineliner pens, a black Sharpie, (not shown) a scrap of fabric just larger than an A4 page and magazine cuttings and photographs of yummy food and recipes. (You might also need double-sided stiky tape when covering the book in fabric).

Step 1: Fold the piece of cardboard in half and cover it with a scrap piece of fabric. You can line the covers with felt or scrapbook paper too.

Step 2: Punch holes through the cover of the book and the paper to go inside and feed the rings through.

Step 3: Tape, glue or clip your magazine cuttings, photographs and recipes into your journal. Leave some space to record information about interesting dishes you’ve tasted in another country or a new restaurant.

Step 4: Give your book a title on the front cover using pen or Sharpie.

A little further inspiration. Below are some pictures of how I decorated and added to my food journal. Let me know what you think!

Some other ideas: Tie the book closed with string or twine to keep loose cuttings, recipes and photographs in place. You could stick an envelope to the back to store other things too.

And there we go! Your own recipe book!

Enjoy!
