What to do with Christmas Cards?

This is one of my favorite things about Christmas time.  Yes, I'm a huge nerd.  Snail mail excites me.  Opening up the mailbox everyday and seeing a big stack of cards (or maybe just one or two) makes me happy.  Bryce seemed to embrace this little quirk of mine and would ask to help me open them up each day, and we hung them up right away.
The kids loved looking through them and seeing our family and friends.  After taking them down though, I feel bad just throwing them all away.  I saved 2010's cards and didn't do anything with them, so the kids found them, played with them, trashed them, and I still find them in random places throughout the house????

  When I saw this idea from the brilliant girls over at eighteen25 did with their Christmas cards, I totally had to do this.  Free Printable + book rings = adorable!!


What did I tell you?  Adorable!

I saw this as well. Great way to save cards for memories, but also festive for next year as decoration.

That is so cute!! I love it. I wish I got more cards that were pictures. I still get a lot of "old fashioned" cards. Not that it's bad or anything because I also LOVE to get snail mail. I am such a dork lol:)

Great idea! I was just wondering what to do with my stack since I didn't attempt December Daily this year.
