How to Organise and Store Your Greetings Cards: Innovative Ideas

 Box labelled cardsGreetings Cards are a great sentimental asset. I'm sure to say that many of us hold onto our old greetings cards because of maybe the lovely words written inside that we probably don't hear too often, or a card that marks a special occasion that we just don't want to forget. If you have a box or two of old greetings cards, you're not alone. Every year, billions and billions of cards get sent across the world - that's a lot of cards! 

If you're like most people, you probably don't have time to go through all of those cards and recycle them. But before you toss them in the trash, consider organising and storing them in a creative way. In this post, we will share some innovative ideas for storing your old greetings cards.

Create a card-holder wall calendar

First, start by writing a list of all the people who sent you greeting cards in previous years. This will help you to organise your cards more easily. Next, consider creating a card-holder wall calendar. This is a great way to display your favourite greeting cards throughout the year. All you need is a calendar, some ribbon or twine, and some push pins.

Store your cards in an album

Another option is to store your cards in an album. This is a great way to keep them safe and organised. Plus, it makes it easy to flip through them and reminisce on past holidays and occasions.

Using Gift Boxes to Hold Your Greetings Cards

If you want to keep your cards handy, consider making a cardholder box. There are so many small storage boxes that can be purchased from your local stores with the size ability to fit your cards in. Even using gift boxes are a great way to simply hold your favourite cards. 

Use Your Greetings Cards for Scrapbooking

If you're more creative and into scrapbooking, consider using your old greeting cards to create beautiful pages. You can also use this idea as a way of preserving memories from past holidays and special occasions.

Make your Greetings Cards into Magnets

You could display your old greetings cards around the house with the use of magnets. This is an easy project that can be completed in a few hours. All you need is some Mod Podge, a magnet sheet, and a few old cards.

Framing Your Old Greetings Cards

If you want to keep your cards but don't have any use for them as scrapbooking materials, magnets, or coasters, consider framing them instead. This is a great way to show off your beautiful card designs all year long! All you need is some Mod Podge, a frame, and a few old cards.
