Christmas Card Book

Sunday, December 11, 2011

Christmas cards are my favorite thing about Christmas time!  I love checking the mailbox and seeing all of the different photos and card designs. 

 I always save Christmas cards, but didn't know what to do with them other than put them in a ziplock inside my Christmas bins.  

Last Christmas at my parents, we went through my mom's stack of old cards.  We read some holiday letters that were over 20 years old from our old neighbors who passed away many years ago.   That's where I got the idea to keep them all in a book to bring out each year at Christmas time!

I got this red leather, three-hole binder at Archiver's to store my old cards.  It has cute metal corners and works great!

I use a 3-hole punch on the cards, photos, and letters to get them in the book.  By staggering the holes, you can see more cards at once and the book doesn't get lop-sided.
I decorate a page with the year and slip it in a plastic page protector to separate years.

Scrapbooking stickers label the side of the book.  
It's fun to set this out on the coffee table at Christmas time!
