So loving Pinterest, I found an idea and made it my own. I covered two pieces of cardboard with festive holiday paper on all four sides.
While that was drying I made a label for the cover using wrinkled paper, stamped with the numbers and letters stating “2012 Christmas Cards”.
Once dried I adorned the edging with glitter.
While that was drying I searched in my craft boxes looking for something substantial to adhere the cards together ~ using just a basic hole punch I used a key purchased from Michaels last year and tied the ribbon through the hole punches…
After tying two cards into my 2012 Christmas Card Booklet, I realized my ribbon was going to run out of space quickly, plus I didn’t want to spend the time tying and retying the ribbon. So I snapped this Carabiner Circle Spring through the punched hole and tied my key ribbon onto the spring instead. Which works so much better!
So what do you think?
I think it will make for a nice keepsake too!!!
