    Here's A Simple Way To Save Your Wedding Cards

    Or any special greeting cards you want to keep.

    Wedding cards are a meaningful memento, but they often end up shoved in a box in the back of a closet.

    If you're looking for a better way to save them, putting them into a small binder is a simple solution.

    First, grab a three-ring binder or photo album that's big enough to hold all of the cards.

    I used a Russell + Hazel mini binder, available at The Container Store. If you had a big wedding and received a lot of cards, you may need something thicker; a Project Life album would work well.

    Next, line the cards up with the rings and mark where you'll need to punch the holes. Then grab a (strong!) hole puncher and have at it.

    Don't forget the Duck Dynasty card you received!

    (The inside says "Do something 'BAD' on your birthday" but our friends crossed out "birthday" and wrote in "wedding." They also added "P.S. Let us know how the de-flowering goes!")

    If you have a lot of small cards, punch holes in a pocket page or an envelope and tuck the small cards in it.

    Once you've punched holes in all of the cards, clip them into the binder.

    For extra credit, add text or your wedding date to the cover of the binder.

    I used a Silhouette Portrait to cut this text out of gold adhesive foil, but you could also use chipboard letters or sticker letters.

    So easy!

    (And you could definitely use this same method to save holiday cards or your kids' birthday cards!)
