Greeting Card Box Gift Idea

For Christmas, each year, I send my mother a photo calendar {I usually create it at Costco} with all her grandchildren's photo's & birthdays.

Last year I made this greeting card photo box for her as well. 

I thought it was a fun gift idea & wanted to share it with you, my friends.

This would make a great Christmas or Birthday gift.
The box is actually a plain CD box that I dressed up with scrapbook paper & a few embellishments.  I used Modge Podge {Love that Stuff}  to glue & seal it.
A closer view of the cover of the box.   {I did this box before I owned my Cricut, so I actually cut everything by hand}
This is inside the box cover & it's just a printout of the cards that were inside the box.  I sealed it with Modge Podge too.
Of course, it has to be organized - so I created some labels.

These are some of the homemade cards that were in the box.   There were 43 total {It took quite a while to make all the cards, but it was super fun & super addicting.} I put each card into it's own plastic card sleeve {purchased at Craft Warehouse} so they wouldn't get ruined. Some of these photo's are taken with the plastic sleeves on, which would explain the glare on some and not others. 

Be Inspired!  Make a Card! Or Better Yet, Make a Card Box!  :)

  21. This project is gorgeous. I know about the "addictive" thing - once I get started on something I can just continue ... I made over a hundred ornaments before Christmas. I was on a roll and having so darn much fun. New Year Wishes. Linda

  25. I was searching on boxes for greeting card storage and came across your blog. Wondering what type of box you bought for it, and the dimensions of your cards. It looks like a tight perfect fit, so just curious. Thanks!
