Hi everyone! Sara coming to you today on behalf of Sara & Sarah! We got to meet Heidi in the spring when at Creative Estates, and now we are thrilled to be guest posting while she takes some time with her new baby!
Our blog concept is to have bi-weekly challenges against one another as to who can make the best project, whether it’s Christmas Decor, or making something with felt, or knitting for little girls. We post our projects and then our readers vote on their favorite. We hope you’ll come say hi!
Today I’m going to show you how to make a booklet of all those lovely Christmas Cards you receive every year. It’s a shame to put them away in a box, right? And with all the fancy folded and double-sided cards these days, you cannot really scrapbook them without losing part of the card. With this method, you can see ALL sides of your cards and have a cute book to flip through.
- Holiday Cards (you could do this for kids’ birthdays too, and put a picture of your child on the cover!)
- Hole Puncher
- Book Rings – I used 2″ diameter rings from Office Max
- Something to make a book cover – I used scrap cardboard embellished with baker’s twine and scrapbooking tags
|Big Stack of Cards|
To make the booklet, find a card that is about middle sized compared to all of the cards and make that your guide. The black & white card on top is my “guide” … and I’m using it to make equally distanced punches on the bottom card. Repeat this step for all cards that are as big or bigger then the guide.
Once all the cards are punched, just “thread” them through the book rings! All you need to do now is create a cover. I like to put the year on all of our Christmas cards; if you wanted you could use your card for the book cover!
All neatly bound up!
