It's doable...Christmas & Holiday Card Organizer

If you're anything like me, you just can't throw away those cards... but what do you do with all of them?

Behold.  So simple and organized.

What you need:

-1 LARGE binder: $10-$20 kinda pricey, I know but that's your only real expense here

-1 piece of scrap book paper of your choice

-Sticky numbers: $3 Michael's (or print them out off the computer)

-Clear page protectors: $5.99 Staples

-Optional: paper cutter

 

STEPS:

1) Cut your scrapbook paper down to 8.5x11 inch.  (If you don't have a paper cutter, think about getting one.  They are a lifesaver and I've used mine hard for years and have never replaced anything on it!) My paper had a design on the corners, I kept the design on the bottom left.

2) Add tape to the back of YOUR Christmas/Holiday card and put it on the scrapbook paper.

3) Add the year with your stick on numbers.  (If you choose to print the year on your scrapbook paper, be sure to do several tests to make sure it comes out how and where you want it to!  I am notorious for putting the paper in upside down).

4) Slide it in to the sheet protector, and viola! 'File' your received cards behind it. Instant organization!

I chuckled to know that someone else thinks like me. I have kept all the Christmas cards we've received for probably 20 years. I keep saying, "There has to be something I could do with these." (They're hidden in one of my Rubbermaid Christmas buckets.), I just wanted to say, Thanks for the remark!"

I'm the same way. I can never throw away my cards from family and friends. I made almost a scrapbook out of mine. I organized them by holiday and basically got the index card rings and put them altogether into a book. They now sit on a shelf on display like a book. :) I love this idea though. It's such a great way to preserve and keep cards and memories.
