easy card and correspondence storage

Remember last week, when I told you about the whole big box of wonderful that I received from Canvas Corp? Well, here's another project I created with some of the goodies I received...


Now let me backtrack just a little...a few months ago, I posted my Forty before 40 list. One of the items on this list is to send birthday cards to friends and family...I've already failed...miserably. BUT, I WILL get better...now that I have this super-duper handy-dandy organizing system.

This is what I started with:

*Some Conservatory paper from 7Gypsies*

*A couple of odds and ends

I removed the handle that came on the library drawer...I wanted something just a little more low-profile...and replaced it with a length of twine and a button I had in my stash...



Then I cut a piece of the scrapbook paper to size and DecouPage'd it onto the bottom of the drawer...


Yes...the paper is a bit wrinkly...no, I'm not the best DecouPage'r...admittedly...

I used the individual month dividers that came with the drawer to organize the different cards I will need throughout the year.

Then I made a couple of postcards using Canvas Corp paper...I like to have a couple on hand to use for a quick note or thank-you...


One sheet of the 12x12 paper had these wonderful vintage-style postcard templates on it...then I simply cut two other sheets with patterns and colors I liked to size, and attached them to what would be the front of the post card. So fast & so easy. And completely personal. I think I may eventually add some other embellishments to the front of the postcards, but they are ready-to-go as-is if I decide to leave them alone.


I now have this drawer sitting right on the main surface of my hutch in my craft area...easy to find...no more excuses for not sending correspondence...I hope.



How do you organize your card sending supplies? My ears are open!

  1. I'm rooting for you that you can keep up with your cards! My best girlfriends now know they are lucky if their gift is even wrapped. LOL I used to be so good at all that...before kids!

  2. I wish I was organized enough to remember to send cards out lol. I love your new storage box, especially the twine on the front. I'm a new follower coming over from SoFab. :)

  3. I love this way of storing your cards - I have cards, but can never find them when I need them. I'll have to try this myself!
