Happy Holidays!

I heart cards. Well, actually I puffy heart any type of stationary. So when one of my favorite stationary shops was closing, I bought almost everything in the store. (FI's reaction was: where are we going to keep ALL of that paper??? I digress. So I am now the proud owner of two years worth of holiday cards in our tiny 750 square foot apartment.

I considered buying new photo cards. However, I don't really care for the picture postcards and picture cards are pretty pricey. What's a girl to do?

Even though I'm the worst DIYer in the knot world, I decided that I could handle this one small project. I went to one of my other favorite stationary shops, Paper Doll, and purchased scrapbook photo corners. I stuck them on the inside flap of each card and then inserted a card. Viola!

The total cost of the project was relatively inexpensive. I bought 250 corners for $4.50. The prints were $.10 a piece at CostCo. I highly recommend getting your professional prints at CostCo. The quality is much better than Snapfish or Shutterfly.

What do you think?
