HOW TO organize your greeting cards

Emily’s Bites of Fun: 

  • Store new or handmade greeting cards in an expandable file or box with dividers.
  • Label each divider so you can sort the cards by occasion or month.
  • Keep a monthly holiday and birthday tracking calendar on the front of each divider, and make cards in advance, storing them in each occasion or monthly section.  You can always personalize them more, later.
  • Clip your favorite pen (you know you all have one – I do!) to the front so that sending the card/s is quick and easy.
  • Store return address labels and postage stamps in the front most pocket.
  • Keep your address book or whatever you use, as an easy reference, in front of the file.
  • Scan or copy handmade cards to reference for future designs. Mark who you sent them to so that you don’t send them the same one again.
  • Keep and easy drop-in envelope in one section.  Use it for addresses torn from envelopes you receive.  Once or twice a year, update your address book, list or electronic device.
