Congrats on your recent wedding!
Now that the festivities are over, you are left with a million memories, and almost as many wedding cards from family and friends. What to do with them all?
Wedding cards make wonderful mementos, so you don't want to leave them hidden in the closet.
That's where this fun and easy DIY project comes in!
Create a Wedding Memory Book by following these 5 simple steps:
Step 1: Find the Perfect Book
Look for a 3-ring binder or photo album that is large enough to hold all of your cards.
(Bonus tip: Try and find one that matches your wedding colors for an added "Ohhh" factor!)
Step 2: Prep the Cards
Line the cards up with the binding rings in your book, and make a light mark with a pencil to show where the holes will need to be made.
Then grab a pair of quality craft hole punches, and go to town!
Step 3: Don't Leave Out the Little Guys
If you have cards that are too small (or oddly shaped) to fit into the book, simply add a "pocket" page (or envelope with holes punched into the sides), and slip the cards inside.
Step 4: Place Your Cards
Once all of the cards are prepped with holes, clip them into your book.
(Bonus Tip: Place your cards in alphabetical order by giver, and you will have an easy way to find a particular memory!)
Step 5: Final Flourish
Once your book is full of memories, add the date of your wedding (or a meaningful phrase) to the front with a metallic pen or sticker letters.
(Bonus Tip: Use ribbon or scrapbook stickers to add an extra touch of custom class!)
♥ And that's it! You now have a personalized memento of your wedding day to share with family and friends, as well as enjoying many trips down memory lane. ♥
(Bonus Tip: This project can be used for any special event that you want to commemorate, including birthdays and baby showers!)
