Round up those Christmas card photos!


We're going to put them all together in one place. :)

Now I did mine with OUR Christmas card photos from through the years...but you could totally do a book with the cards you receive from friends and family.
The first thing you have to do is dig up all your photos...mine went back to 1991, the year we got married. I'm actually a little surprised I found that one. I am missing a few years, and I'd be lying if I said that didn't bug me. It's not so bad that I stay up at night wondering where they are or anything...that would be weird. The nice thing about this book is that if I ever DO find the missing pictures, I can just add them in. Same thing with this years picture...I'll just add it in.
Easy peasy.
So...do some gathering...


Put them in chronological order. Laugh at your hairstyles.


Cover the backs with some Christmas Home paper & add the year. Feel free to doo-dad them up too.
For the cover, I trimmed a little bit off the right side:


Shhh. Don't tell. I think my cover is technically upside down. BUT. Along with the missing Christmas card years...I'm going to be ok with that and just roll with it.
I punched one hole in the upper left corner of the cover and the cards.
I decorated the front and inside cover of my book:


I love dictionary paper. It's fun if you use the pages with 'Christmas' and 'holiday' on them.



I feel like I should take this opportunity to once again mention laughing at the hair.
Specifically, my bangs. I had killer bangs.
Then just assemble your pages, and you're done!


Ah, the Scooby card year. This was our Halloween picture. I liked it so much I used it for our Christmas cards too.

Have fun putting your books together! :)
