    Default Recipe Swap on Index cards?

    Anyone interested in a swap like this? On 3 x 5 recipe sized cards? Decorate as you see fit with pics of food and include recipe instructions on one side only. Any takers?

    Sounds interesting! What are the parameters? Digital with hand drawn elements? all handwritten? How many are being swapped for?

    I do like the idea.
    I have a new Address! The old one still works (my mom lives there) but PM me for the NEW one

    I was thinking it should be completely open for both P&P and MMA... as in just do whatever you want on a 3" x 5" index card. The recipe can be hand printed, pre-printed on a card or even typed out and glued on like found poetry. And with some sort of drawing or collage to go with it about the food or ingredients. It has to be artistic for sure. And with maybe a nice paper glued on the back so it's pretty both sides.

    I had a look on AFA and they have quite a few recipe cards. They have art on the front and then the recipe on the back. That's probably the best way to do it, lots of room.

    I love recipe card swaps (& I only have one box full so I'm still game to collect more lol)

    A lot of my cards are folded (like 6x5 & folded in half---or 9x5 & accordian folded...) or they have nifty lil pockets made into them for longer recipes... As long as the end result is 3x5 they're all good.

    I absolutely love this idea! One of my favorite websites is "They Draw and Cook" - devoted to illustrated recipes. Such great ideas there to get you going!

    I would totally be in on that. One of my favorite swaps of all time was a recipe swap Ginart hosted back in like 2012 with hot chocolate. Sounds fun!

    Sounds fun, juleeque that websites!

    Sal - how many would we be trading for? Also would we make all different ones or x amount of the same recipe, so everyone ends up with the same?

    I think it would a 3/3 swap or a 6/6 if there were enough people. I also think you could do the same recipe or different ones, whatever your preference is.

    I'll take them if no one else has. Just let me know what you'd like in return.
