Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m finally Organizing my Homemade Cards. I was looking for a specific card the other day, and had to dig through a Bunch. Of. Cards.
This is ridiculous, time to organize them . . .
The first thing I did was get some Greeting Card Organizers at Michaels for $15.97 each, regular price. They go on sale All The Time (often, they’re half off) – you can also use a coupon.
The second thing I did was get some bags to put the cards in so they don’t get dirty and the embellishments don’t get ruined. I got the ones on the left from Joanns (online they’re 50 for $3.49) and the ones on the right from amazon (100 for $6.25). I also got some 4×4 bags from amazon (100 for $7.49) for small cards and gift card holders.
Here are a few cards in their bags. Another advantage to using these bags is that you can put a coordinating envelope in them too. No more looking for an envelope when you’re ready to use a card.
The Greeting Card Organizers come with dividers – if you notice, there are tabs on the sides of the dividers that fit into slots in the organizer to keep them in place. I used my brother P-touch labelmaker to make labels. This is an old labelmaker – but it still does a great job!
Here’s what the organizers look like all filled up. Hmm, I think I need one more box . . .
Another advantage to organizing the cards is seeing which types of cards I need some of – in my case, I need more Get Well cards . . .
I got my homemade card organization idea from Jennifer McGuire, even though she puts hers in a drawer, it’s the same concept. She has LOTS of organization videos, you should watch them – she’s one organized lady . . .
