EASY Christmas Card Chipboard Scrapbook



It is the highlight of my holiday season to get a Christmas card, especially the photo cards.  Some turn out so nice and you know that they have taken time and money to send them out.  When the holidays are over, I hate to throw them away, so I put them in a box to save.  What good do they do me in box? No one can see them! This year, I put them in a chipboard book, so that when guests come by through out the year, they can enjoy them too.



I love to scrapbook, but I needed something fast and easy.  This is what you will need:

 -Chipboard Book
-rings
-scrapbook paper
-letters
-Hole Punch
-accessories ( I used glitter letters and flower)
-Glue runner


First you will cut the scrapbook paper to fit your chipboard.  Then glue it to the back and front page of your chipboard.








Next, you will hole punch the cover, so that you put the rings through when time. 





Then I cut paper for the inside of the chipboard book.  You will make the pages a 1/2 inch smaller than the cover.







Once the paper is cut, you will need to hole punch holes for the pages.  I used a sharpie to mark the spot.




Now put your book together with the rings and get ready to accessorize.





Here is my finished product! It took me about an hour to make.




I also made a pocket for the regular cards.....



This is perfect to set out on your coffee table or book shelf! 



Have a blessed day!

  2. This is a great idea. I'm like you; I save the cards, but they do tend to accumulate. I might just have to try this!

  3. That is a really cute idea. I end up storing the Christmas cards we receive in a drawer. This is a great idea!
