Holiday Card Archive

Here's a great idea for what to do with those holiday cards, letters, and photos that you want to keep but don't know how.

I have a basket full of old Christmas photos we've received. I've thought about trying to do a scrapbook page of each family and adding to it each year, but haven't ever managed to do that. What about decorated 6x9 envelopes with holes punched in the side and book rings to hold them together? You could get really fancy with these- or not. Or what about page protectors in a 3-ring binder? You could always use cardstock to make the pages stiff so that they don't flop around. If they sent a holiday newsletter, it would be easy to display it on the page, and you could just keep adding to their page each year. Ooh, one of our 9"x9" albums would be lovely used this way!

Okay, this is starting to sound like a fun project! Do you already do something like this? If so, please share! Is this post sparking any other fun thoughts of how to corral but preserve those special holiday greetings?


  1. I have all the cards and newsletters saved, but have never done anything more. In fact I started this years ago before I ever became a scrapper.

  2. I have bunches of cards that people send and NEVER know what to do with them ;0(
    Great ideas.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
