We are so fortunate to have such wonderful friends and family that were able to celebrate our little man’s birthday with us.  All of the gifts were so generous and thoughtful!

And the cards!

They are so cute that I just can’t throw them away, but I don’t want to throw them all in a box and forget about them.  As I started to think about a creative way to display them, I thought that there has to be a better way to store them.

Punch Holes In Cards

I started by using a one-hole punch and punch a hole in the corner and attach the cards to a clip ring.

Attach Cards To Round Binder Clip

Once all the cards were punched, I put them on a round binder clip.  I made sure that it was large because we had so many cards.

Create Cover

I then decided to make a cute cover for the cards with a monster cut-out from the party.

What to do With Birthday Cards

Now, I have a cute display of all of the sweet messages and cards everyone gave our little man for his first birthday!

I am just so happy with how they turned out and how easy they were to make.

Now that I have an easy way to store cards, I will keep this going to holidays, birthdays, and other cards that we get.  I want to make sure that I am able to save and organize all the cards that mean so much to us!
