2012 Christmas Card Bundle

For the life of me, I can't find or remember where I've seen this idea to bundle up your holiday photo cards using jump rings. Anyway, I decided to try it for myself because I just couldn't bear to part with all of the beautiful photo cards we received this year. On top of that, I had all the crafty supplies that I needed to make it happen (wink): jump rings, a few dies, patterned paper, corrugated cardboard (thanks to my Bota Box), patterned paper and an extra photo of the kids from our 2012 Christmas card.

Here's a look at the finished product as it is now displayed on a side table in the living room. Even though Christmas has come and gone, I like having my card bundle out and about to look at. Plus, let's face it, the holidays are usually so hectic that I scarcely remember looking at some of the cards and photo cards we received!

 Here's a look at the cover I designed using this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #112. I decided to add jumbo eyelets to dress up the cover and give it that test-of-time sturdiness factor.

The cover also features a few MFT goodies: High Rise Numbers, Let It Snowflake, and Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.
I just love the way this project turned out and will definitely be making this an annual event! Actually, I think it would be fun to have my 'cover' and jump rings all ready to go for 2013 and add the photo cards as they are delivered to our mailbox. I hope my good intentions pan out!

This looks great. I saw the same idea on someones blog and saved it so I can do the same thing with all of my 2012 cards that we received. Did you do just photo cards or did you add in the handmade cards as well?

I just bundled my photo cards and a few special cards.
