As I was looking at an exhibit last weekend in the contemporary arts area of the National Art Gallery. An idea came to me about what to do with my old Christmas cards. The artist had used an old clothesline and thousands of squares cut out of magazines maybe about 4" by 4" and made a long 'snake like' garland. He punched a hole through the center of each piece of paper and had them threaded onto the clothesline wire. It was not very colorful but I thought I would try it with my old Christams cards, that with some amount of guilt, I had tossed into the recycle bin. I will look for a nice gold cord to use to string them and add onto it each year. I wish I would have done this with my girls birthday cards throughout their early years. I guess it's never to late to start.

Great idea. Similarly, an old Martha Stewart Craft was to punch holes in the corner and put a fastener through the corner. Keeps them nice and you can look back over the years.
