My very first post on My Friend Betty Says was on saving the precious holiday cards we receive each year. I can’t believe I’m here again and ready to share another simple idea with you.
We have not taken down any Christmas decorations yet but I took down the cards today. I become very sad at the end of the holiday season as we pack up and store away the delicate ornaments, the soft stockings and of course the beautiful photo cards. Most of them are of gorgeous children dressed in their best! What makes me really happy is reading the messages again and thinking of making a super tiny project out of everyone’s hard work and money.
Thanks to Pinterest for the simple idea of hole-punching and stringing some ribbon through the cards!
I sorted the cards by shape…
…used leftover ribbon (and my favorite color) from Santi’s music party...
…and placed them on our coffee table!
We can now enjoy those cute little faces throughout the year!
What do you do with your photo cards? Would love to hear some more ideas!
