If you are lucky enough to be compiling your scrapbook themed album from old hand-written recipes then consider having the originals color copied onto acid and lignin free paper for your pages. A color laser copy will keep better and be safer to use near photos.

Make the last page of the album into a pocket page for storage of the originals so they are kept safe.
