Greetings cards are among the best things to collect since they hold a sentimental value and serve as a remembrance for special occasions in your life. However, while greetings cards are thin and light, they can easily accumulate, and before you know it, you’re left with a bunch of greetings cards, and it’s getting out of hand. As such, you should store them properly and keep them organised.
When you receive greetings cards, it’s typical to have more than one, especially on occasions, such as birthdays or anniversaries. Still, you can also easily determine how you can group these cards accordingly. Here are some tips:
Sort them out
There are many ways to sort out your collection of greetings cards. You can arrange them based on dates that you received them, based on occasions, or based on the senders. You can also sort them out based on sizes so that you can file them neatly. When you’ve sorted them out based on the categories that you want, it will be easier for you to find a specific card later on when you want to reminisce.
Use containers with a lot of space but are still fairly small
Greetings cards don’t require a heavy box container. That’s inefficient and not cost-effective. Additionally, greetings cards are thin, and they can be pressed. You won’t need too much space, and a container box like cereal boxes or something you can buy from the thrift store will work just fine. By using a fairly small container, you won’t be allotting unnecessary space for your greetings card collection, and you can easily store the box away.
If you ever find the need for more space for your greetings cards, you can always upgrade later on. For now, a simple box will do.
Punch a hole and add binder rings to your cards.
If you want to go about it the classic way, you can be artsy and punch holes on your greetings cards. Remember that cereal box earlier? If you want to be a little more creative, you can cut a homemade cover out of it and wrap it with paper with the design of your choice. Or you could go plain. Either way, you can make a cover that looks nicer.
Afterwards, punch holes on your homemade cover and bind your greetings cards together with it. These will make it look more like a greetings card collection book. If you like, you can do one for each occasion and wrap the cover with the theme according to the event—like birthdays or holidays!
Greetings cards may not seem like much at first glance, but once you start collecting them, they can easily pile up. If you choose to keep your cards, follow the organisation tips above. You can also make DIY crafting projects when organising your greetings cards with family and friends for added fun.
