Crafting Chronicles: Christmas Card Booklets:

I don't know about you but I always wait until after the New Year to take my Christmas decor down. This year was extra hard because I busted my butt to get it up so fast in the first place so I wanted to enjoy it for a few more extra days! 
Christmas is officially down as of yesterday and it is all packed away. 

What do you end up doing with all of those beautiful Christmas Cards you received that adorned your home during the holiday? I hope you don't throw them away, knowing how hard your family and friends worked to mail them out to you! Well here is the perfect solution if you find yourself in a rut when it comes to all of these amazing cards... Christmas Card Booklets! I started making these a few years ago and I absolutely love them. I always have one or 2 extra of our Christmas card (which I do on purpose) and I use ours as the top card for the booklet. It is as simple as using a hole punch at the top corner, stringing a piece of rope straight through, and tying a knot! You can stack them in your trunk, photo box, or wherever you keep photos/keepsakes. 
I love looking back on all of our family and friends each year and seeing how their family's have grown! 

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! 
Happy Sunday & Happy Crafting!

  1. Yes, I do this too!! Only I make a cardboard cover and decorate the cover with scrapbook paper and embellishments! (Although I have yet to complete the last few year's!)
