The Card Chronicles

Transform your favorite greeting and birthday cards into a storybook for the kids. Your kids might not be able to read all the beautiful, loving cards they received as babies, but this book is something they can read -- when they grow tired of “Goodnight Moon.” Keep and add to as they grow up, too.

What you’ll need:
hole punch; cardboard; card stock; binder rings; and glue.


Directions:
For the front and back covers, take cardboard from a cereal box and glue cardstock on both sides -- decorate with stickers, gift tags or photos. Then, cut each of your greeting cards at the seam and lay them flat once they are in the rings. Punch holes for the binder rings, arrange the cards in a stack, and slip the rings into the holes to bind together.
