What to do with all those cards??

Standard

If you’re anything like me, you had a lovely collection of Christmas cards that filtered in all through December. {We got even more after I took this picture too!}

I always get a little sad when it’s time to take them all down, because all our friends and family spent time addressing them, and it doesn’t seem right to just throw them all away. Thus, the scrapbook page of cards was born.

Christmas 2010
Christmas 2011
I just love seeing all the pictures (well…most of them. Some don’t fit so I have to make some cuts.) and seeing how things have changed in a year. For example, the family in the bottom left (bottom picture) are the same family from the top left picture in 2010. Their sonogram is now a baby picture!
I also like to include our card, so I can see how our family has changed, year to year!
Our Christmas card from this year!
Of course the non-photo cards get cut up too, and become gift tags for next year’s presents!
What do you do with your cards after Christmas is over?
