Saw It! Pinned! Did It!

Hey Everybody!

I am linked up as usual with Katie at Keep Calm and Carry On and Stephanie at Beautiful Mess. If by some crazy chance you haven't checked out these ladies blogs, do it, now! They rock!

I have been so lucky to have had a beautiful wedding shower and two amazing baby showers as a result I have boxes full of cards! I had a hard time finding something constructive to do with them, but refused to throw them away. Then I came across this on Pinterest!

So I went to work!

First I organized all my cards, finding the largest one.

I then cut a cover and backer using the largest card as a template. I made the cover about a half an inch larger than the card.

Then I used some scrap booking stickers to decorate the cover.

I added a layer of Mod Podge to protect the cover.

Then a put a hole punch in the corner of each card.

I added each card as I went, this made the process a lot easier!


I think it turned out great, now I just have to get to work on my Wedding and Christmas cards!

Happy Thursday!
