Christmas Card Album

This is my first project of the year.  It is an album to hold the Christmas Cards for that year.  I got the idea from my friend Cyn who saw the project on Monica Coffman's website.  I love the album because we get all these great cards each year.  In the past I have always bundled them up and then tossed them after a few years.  Now they can be kept and enjoyed.

The album is easy to put together.  I used two 8.5 in squares of chipboard.  I covered the outside with Jovial paper from Basic Grey.  The inside was covered with green card stock.  I punched a hole in the upper right corner of the covers and the card and tied it all together with red twill tape.  Cyn used a binder ring, I didn't have one big enough, but will get one for next year. 

If you want to keep your cards in a pretty album try this.
