DIY Recipe Card Holder
When you're in the kitchen cooking up a storm, sometimes it's hard to keep your recipe cards clean. Accidents happen and things can get messy, especially when little kids are helping out! When my girls were little, I had SO many empty baby food bottles and I didn't want to throw them away. There HAD to be something we could use them for! I started buying baby food in those little plastic containers with the lids and they came in handy to store a variety of small things such as beads, safety pins, buttons and much more. The question still remained....What do you do with the left over glass bottles?

Recipe Card Holder Supplies
1. Regular sized baby food bottle cleaned out and with a lid
3. 6" Dowls (I bought the 12" dowls and cut them in 1/2)
4. Hot glue gun
6. 2" Craft Clothespins
7. Scissors and wire cutters
8. Small craft supplies of your choice (wood shapes, miniature hats, flowers, ropes, birds, butterflies, etc)
How to make your own Recipe Card Holder
Next, decide what you want around the bottle to decorate it. I found some bamboo placemats on clearance to make some fall holders. I placed the jar on the placemat to see where I needed to cut it and cut to the height I wanted and length needed to wrap all the way around the bottle with regular scissors. Then I glued the cut bamboo strip to the bottle with a hot glue gun.
Decorating your Recipe Card Holder
Now comes the fun part! The options are endless when it comes to decorating the bottles. Have fun with it!
Whether you choose to use these holders for recipe cards, inspirational quotes or to hold grocery lists, it's fun to keep or give as gifts!
I like to make a batch of homemade cookies or include a small package of cookie mix along with crocheted kitchen towel or scrubbies and set everything up in a gift basket for neighbors and friends.
