This quick project has been on my crafting to-do list for months. Once I sat down to work on it, I knocked it out in a half hour or less, and the brunt of that time was spent hole-punching the cards.
I didn’t start keeping cards until I became a mom, and I’ve been somewhat sporadic about it since then, so the card keeper is not nearly as full as it’d be if I’d been keeping cards from childhood-forward . . . or even wedding-forward! But I *have* kept a nice mix of homemade and store-bought cards from my husband, son, stepson, parents, in-laws, siblings & spouses, nieces & nephews, and friends.
This was a guinea-pig project for me. Since I’m happy with how it turned out, I’m going to do the same for my hubby with all the cards he’s saved over the years, and also for my kiddo because he likes to save many of his cards.
I like having the ring of cards sitting on my favorite bookshelf in my office, alongside the scrapbook I made for my kiddo’s and his cousins’ artwork =).
