What Are You Doing With Your Christmas Photo Cards?


In January there is time to read through our Christmas cards and enjoy them once again. We all discard some, but tend to keep the Christmas Photo Cards of family and close friends. Last year I got tired of putting these cards in a storage box to be forgotten. Here is my solution, which i want to share with you.

IMG_1501Take a punch to make a hole in each of your cards

IMG_1498Use a key chain or ribbon to link your photos

IMG_1499Because I used a chain I added several ribbons to ‘trick’ it out

IMG_1500I now leave my photo cards out to be enjoyed throughout the year. Please let me know if you decide to use my idea in the comments. Enjoy the results. I certainly have.

    That’s a fun idea, Stepheny. I have thought about pulling out one card at dinner and including a thankfulness prayer for their being in our lives. Like all my ideas, I now have to put it in practice.

    I save the non-photo cards, cut them down and use them for gift tags for the next Christmas.

  3. Nice idea…Having Christmas photo cards isn’t something we practice here, though.
