What Do You Do with Your Christmas Cards??

What do you do with your Christmas cards???

I would hate to throw them away.

A few years ago someone gave me a great idea. I wish I could give that person credit, but I honestly can't remember who told me. Maybe they will read this and give themselves credit. :)

Anyway, that brilliant person had a great idea. It was to hole punch the cards and put a binder ring through them. That way you have a little flip type book that you can go back and look at. I love going back each Christmas and looking at how all the kids have grown up, families have grown, and people have changed.

Anyway, as I was making my 2010 collection today, I thought I should share. I am sure some of you needed an idea of what to do with those beautiful cards!! Here are my four books 2007-2010. I love them!

Great idea! Will do that when/if I have extra time on my hands which I should find if you can with three kiddos. :)

Oh my! I love that. For several years I scrapbooked them and set the albums out at Christmas. But the past few years it's just too much, we get nearly a hundred picture cards! I love this idea, I will have to do that!!

A few of those look familiar. :)
And that is a fabulous idea. I was very sad to throw all the cards away this year. I may have to start this tradition.

I love this! I scrapbook mine and have yet to do it from 2010 or 2009! I love looking at Stacy's christmas cards because she sorta does the same thing. Great idea, consider it copied!
