DIY Christmas Card Flip Book

Christmas Card Keeper.  One of the best parts of the holiday season is receiving adorable holiday cards in the mail.  These days many people are sending out the most beautiful photo cards and it is a shame to throw them away, but keeping them can be a pain.  Here is a simple way to keep all of your favorite holiday cards organized so that you can display them for years to come.

Christmas Card Flip Book
Single Hole Punch
Metal Ring(s) found at any craft or office supply store

1.     Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the top left corner of your cardstock, being sure to make the hole ~1/2 inch from the top left corner.  Note:  If you prefer a book type binding, punch an additional hole 3 inches below the first hole.
2.     Use your cardstock as a template to punch holes in each of your holiday cards, being sure to position them the way you would like to see them as you flip through the cards.
3.     Once you have punched holes in each of your holiday cards, use the metal ring(s) to string them together.  Be sure that your ring is large enough to allow you to easily flip through the cards.

Use your family’s holiday card as the cover of your card flip book so that each year you can look back on the changes and major events in your life over the years.

Until next time,
