This was the first year that Sean & I sent out our own Christmas Card. In case you weren’t on the list (oops…. sorry!) here it is:

It’s also the first year that we have received more than a couple of cards! We got some great photos as well as a baby announcement or two in there! I guess once you’re married you become worthy of getting on other people’s card lists.

Since I’m a total hoarder, I wanted to share the super simple way that we are keeping and storing our cards.

All I did was use a simple hole punch to punch two holes in each card. Hint: use a piece of paper to mark how far apart the holes should be so you stay consistent, or use a tw0-hole punch if you happen to have one.

Then, I hooked them together with two of these binder rings. It only took a few minutes, but now we can easily flip through an “album” of the year’s cards!

How do you store your holiday cards? Or do you just toss them?

Love this! Recycling the cards is always the saddest part of the holidays for me. Well, that and drinking the last of the egg nog, when there is no more in the stores... I love the idea of saving the special ones! We always get around 60 cards and some people don't write anything on them, but some people put a great deal of time and I'd love to save them. Thank you for the idea!

Also, I keep an album of all our family cards (that we've sent out over the years). I've been making my own cards since 1982...

Wow, that is impressive. I used to always keep them, but I stopped. Now I use the cards to cut up and make Christmas gift tags, and I do save the ones that have photos (which are the majority now). Loved your card!

I love that idea! That's a better use than hoarding them like I do!
