CWC (10/24/11 Card Organizer and video

Happy Monday,
Today's project is a card organizer I made for my dad. Since dad is in a wheelchair he can't get out and get cards for holidays and special occasions and he's always asking me to make him cards that he can give to my mom. I thought I would make him a book that would hold a whole year's worth of cards. Now I just need to make the cards :)


Enjoy today's video:

Have a great Monday everyone :)

  8. Love your little card organizer! What a great gift this would be for an older person who can't get out and about or someone in a nursing home/assisted living! Wish I had a Cinch or Bind-It-All!! Guess I could use mini rings to bind it.
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Wonderful idea, would make a great gift for anyone with blank cards included, or addressed envelopes included for our son who just moved to Texas, so quick and easy to send cards to his family. Love it! Can see many applications.
    Thank you for sharing.

  12. As I was watching this, I thought it would make a nice gift for a teacher with all her students birthdays listed on each page - and cards for boys and girls in each pocket - can't wait to do it. Thank you!!! My second thought was - it would be great for my husband, but then I would be making my own cards - hee!hee!

  13. I've been making these style of card holders for quite some time. I like your idea of slicing a diagonal off the pocket--gets rid of some of the bulk. I also like your idea for storing envelopes--something I never did.

    These are great for gift giving loaded with homemade cards. On top of the pocket I attach what might you call a perpetual calendar I've created. One for each month with 28-31 lines for inserting a date to remember; i.e. birthday, anniversary, etc.

  25. What a fantastic idea. You made it simple and it's definitely a project to remember. What a great daughter you are for both your parents. Bless you

  26. WHat a great project! LOve it.

    Thought I would mention if you move the ruler of the cinch out 1/8" (which is half the difference in the size of the covers) you can punch the holes of covers with the cinch and they will still line up with your pages.

  30. My dad would love this! And Betsy's right, this would be a great gift for someone who can't get out much, like someone in a nursing home. It's nice to have something to remember fond memories by.
