I love getting Christmas cards, birth announcements, birthday party invitations, etc. Especially the ones that have the pictures of the birthday girl or baby! But I never know what to do with them afterwards! Do I throw it away, they are too big to store in a photo book for the most part and they are just so darn cute with our new niece’s picture on them that I just can’t throw them away. So I decided to keep them and make something of it! Here is what you will need:
- Any Birth Announcements, Birthday Picture Invitations, Christmas Picture Cards, etc
- 2 Metal Book Rings or ribbon/string
- Hole Puncher
- Decorative Paper or Cardstock
The rest is pretty simple. Take your photos and punch holes in them where you would like to make them into a book!
Add them to the rings in the order in which you received them (or you can make multiple books for different years or events/occasions). As you receive more, just continue to add them to your book. Eventually it will be large and full of great pictures of all your friends and family!
Decorate a piece of cardstock the same size as the largest picture card and add it to the front! This has become a super cute conversational piece for my coffee table! This was our first one that I made with the kiddos!
What tasks did you complete this week to clear out your clutter?
