So a friend of mine just called me. She has a box full of cards she received when she got married (and reminded me that...well...so do I!), and she asked if I had any ideas of something fun to do with them. Does anyone have any ideas that are more creative than just sticking them in an album?


I'm really interested, because I also have a box full of cards I received from when I lost my daughter a year ago. I'd rather do something with them that I can display rather than have them just sitting in a box.


Thanks in advance for any ideas!

That seems like a good idea, except that I have way more cards than would work for that. I wanted to do something that I could include all the cards in, instead of picking and choosing. I don't want to throw the extras away, and keeping the extras in a box kind of defies the point anyway.

*sigh* I might do a shadow box too (with Cora's cards, not the wedding cards) but what to do with the rest of them?

If you really want to highlight each one, then I guess I would do an 8x11 book with a page per card and print the message on the inside of the card on card stock and adhere that to the page.

I am trying to think of something else. If it comes to me I'll let you know.

I just make a pocket page for my SB. And put all the cards in the pocket from that event. I havent gotten real creative with cards so far.
