Christmas Card Scrap Book

I adore Christmas cards.  I love getting the mail and discovering that we have a Christmas card in there from friends or family.  I hang them in the kitchen and it makes me happy to look at them all.  I don't care if they have pictures, a note, or even an actual signature.  I just adore all of them.  So, last year being our first married Christmas, I decided that I would like to save all of these Christmas cards so that we can go back and look at them each year.  I think it will be fun to watch our friends families change and grow over the years.  Since I don't want to keep them in a shoebox like everything else senimental that I own (haha!)  I decided to make a scrapbook of them that we can add to each year.  And, we can store it away with the Christmas stuff, so we only see it once a year and it's more special.

Here it is!

I am terrible at scrapbooking.  I don't invest the time and money into that I should.  But, it works :)

Here's where this year's cards will go!!

What do you do with your Christmas cards after the season?

i always keep our cards (not just christmas cards but other cards too) and i just put them in a box---not very creative but I hate to throw them away.

I love this idea. I never know what to do with all the Christmas cards people send me when the holidays are over. I usually just put them away in a box. I like this idea though because then it becomes a book we can look at each year.

Thanks so much ladies! I keep all of our other cards in a shoe box too, I need to start scrap books for all of them!

Sadly, I throw them out! I keep close friends and families, but throw out others. I am going to start a scrapbook for my fiance and I's cards so we can look back on our cards throughout the years.
