DIY: Special Occasion Keepsake

• 06 October 2010

I firmly believe we all have an innate desire to preserve...namely to preserve special experiences; and while most of us have good intentions to do just this, we often have trouble following through. Why? Well, I know for me the task often seems daunting as I feel like I need to make a photo book every month, or scrapbook a bajillion pages (lots of time and $). These days, I need "easy" and this simple method of preservation is just that! Recently, I created a keepsake for my newborn son Gray, but you could follow the same instructions for a birthday, wedding anniversary, shower, etc.

Step 1: Gather all gift tags and cards.
Step 2: Stack in order of size with your larger cards being on the bottom of the pile.
Step 3. Using a 1/8 inch hole punch, place a hole in the top left corner of the card/tag.
Step 4: Slide a piece of thin, satin ribbon through the stack and tie a bow (one roll is 50 cents at any craft store).

Because the cards are adhered together with a simply piece of ribbon, you can easily add more cards. Just think how fun it will be to read these cards someday in the future!
