As I've mentioned just a few times, I love getting Christmas cards. I can never bring myself to throw them away, and always have good intentions of doing something with them. But alas, they typically end up in the great photo box of doom, never to be seen again. I vowed this year would be different, and I'm happy to report that thanks to Pinterest, I have 2 fun new ideas for my Christmas cards! So I thought I'd share these with you today before your cards get lost in the post-holiday chaos.
Eighteen25 shared about turning your Christmas cards into a little book, and I thought this was perfect! I like this idea for a couple of reasons. First, there's very little cost involved. All you do is print your cover, then get some book rings to hold them together. I also like this because unlike when you put them in a an actual photo album, you can still see the front and back of the card, as many people are now using double-sided cards. Oh, and also? This idea works well because cards come in SO many different sizes that it's hard finding the right photo album to put them in. So yeah, I think I've made it clear that I think this is a great idea. :) I love that it also took me only about 10 minutes to do this. For the free printable and full tutorial, go here.
Ashley Ann Photography is to take photos of your Christmas cards with your phone, then assign that picture to that person's contact info. Then when they call, their cute Christmas card photo will be displayed. I've loved doing this just because I don't have photos for most of my contacts, plus these are usually everyone's favorite pictures, so I'm sure they'd love that their pictures are getting used for this! :)
Do you do anything special with your Christmas cards? I'd love to hear about it if so!
