I have already showed you how I journal about my boys day to day life and how I keep all their memorabilia. Today we will talk about how I organize all those baby shower and birthday cards. Normally cards would probably get thrown away because I don't like to keep clutter but since my boys can't read nor can they really appreciate what is written in cards yet, I really want them to be able to read later how much they were loved, how much everyone couldn't wait to meet them, and what their personalities were like as babies and toddlers.
Around Christmas time I saw a lot of people around blog land were binding their christmas cards in book rings. I don't save Christmas cards but I knew it would be the perfect thing for all the birthday and baby shower cards I had saved.
I knew I wanted it to have dividers so I could put all the cards in one book. I cut out the dividers using my Silhouette, added a picture to the front, hole punched the cards, put them on the book rings, and tied some ribbon on the rings.
Next I did a book for all the congratulatory cards and baby shower cards.
Some funny things I found while looking at the cards, I had given Kevin this card for Father's Day right after we found out I was pregnant. Any guesses what is wrong with this card?
I will be doing a post later this week to give an update on my two littles and what they have been up to.
The fabulous parties I am linking up to:</div>
