Christmas Card book

My BFF taught this great class the other night.  She is soooo talented and clever. We (the students) saved all our Christmas cards, envelopes, anything from any events that happened in December and then came together and created this fun book!

We placed friends return address labels on the inside cover. I know I used last year's book to do this year's Christmas cards!

There were divider pages for different segments. Of course you had to figure out what you wanted where on your own and that was the hardest!

I even kept the stamps and adhered them to one page divider. It's fun to see how the stamps change from year to year.

The dividers are a good spot to place pictures and other extra items. It certainly has been fun to see how much the children change from year to year. No more guessing what year the photos were taken!

On the left, you'll see that some of the dividers even have pockets! What a great place to stash Christmas letters and other fun things...

Here's the back cover... Aren't I right to brag on her cleverness? The book was bound with the Zutter bind-it-all. She had us hang some plastic ornaments on the spine and tie a few ribbons on it too.
Stacy rock girl!!

That is amazing! All my cards are in a ziploc bag, not nearly so adorable!
What a great keepsake!
