My extended family keeps growing and growing. I’m about to become aunt (again) for the third time this year! Between my husband’s family and mine, we have got tons of birthdays and occasions to keep up with throughout the year. The hardest ones for me to remember are all my nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays. I have 18 of them, which means there is at least one if not 2 birthdays per month. I want them each to know I am thinking of them on their special day. The easiest way for me to do that is to send them a birthday card.
I like to stock up on all sorts of Hallmark cards at Walmart because the prices start at just 47 cents each. CENTS! That’s right, you can actually buy something nice for a few pennies. I almost didn’t believe it myself. But it is true. Walmart is the only place you will find Hallmark cards for 47 cents. Be sure to look for them in your Walmart’s Hallmark greeting card section.
There are so many cute Hallmark cards! I picked up a variety of the 47-cent greeting cards for birthdays and other occasions. Now that I have all of these cards, I need somewhere to store them until I need them. An organizer binder keeps cards safe and conveniently close. Organizing greeting cards with a DIY Greeting Card Organizer Binder is easy.
One of the main reasons I like using a binder to organize greeting cards is because cards of all sizes will fit inside a protective binder. Another reason to use a binder is because it does not take up much room on the bookshelf. It’s a simple way for me to keep things organized.
How to make a DIY Greeting Card Organizer Binder
- A 1 inch binder (hardcover)
- Clear Sheet Protectors (Top Loading)
- Hallmark cards
- Insertable Plastic Dividers
1. Label the Insertable Plastic Dividers with card categories. I used a printer to print my labels. Suggested Card Categories: Birthday, Get Well, Congratulations, Thank You, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Wedding and Baby.
2. Insert one greeting card into a Clear Sheet Protector. Repeat this step for each card.
3. Organize cards according to the categories in Step 1.
4. Open the 3-ring binder and insert a labeled plastic divider. Then, insert all of the corresponding cards in their sheet protectors. Move on to the next category divider, followed by the corresponding cards. Repeat until every category divider and its corresponding cards have been inserted into the binder. Close the 3-rings to finish.
For example, start out your binder by adding the divider labeled “Birthday,” followed by all of the Birthday Cards in their sheet protectors. Now you are ready for the second category divider. Once you have added the category divider, follow it with the cards that fit into that category. Repeat this pattern until all of your cards have been inserted behind the proper category in your organizer binder.
