DIY Card Keepsake

I'm not one for saving cards, but when it came to my wedding and bridal shower I felt it was necessary! I decided instead of throwing them all in a box, I'd make a cute little book instead.

Tools:

Cardboard

Paper

Glue

Hole Puncher

Scissors

Cards

Step One:

Get a cardboard box (after your shower, you should have plenty).

Grab the largest card you have, measure and cut out the cardboard to be a little larger than that.

Step Two:

Decorate your cardboard! I used some scrapbooking paper to cover the cardboard and then used one of the envelopes that my super talented friend over at Lina Lulu Paperie addressed to us :)

Step Three:

Use the hole puncher to create a hole in all of your cards. You will also need to go through all of your cards and put them in whatever order you'd like!

Step Four:

Tie some kind of thick string or yarn through your hole punches.

Thats it! You now have a cute little scrapbook of all of your cards.

Tip: I think when I do this for my wedding cards, I will put the whole punch in the middle, that way the weight is more distributed. Other than that, I love how it turned out!
