What to do with your Christmas Cards??

I love getting Christmas Cards/Letters, it truly is one of my favorite parts of Christmas, reconnecting with family and friends. Well, I didn't like having this stack of cards I didn't know what to do with at the end of the season. I got this idea from one of Ali Edward's books and I just love it. I did it last year and I did it again this year. I just took my square punch and took bits and peices from cards, letters, and pictures. I make sure I get parts of everyone from each photo, I try to punch out handwriting and signatures from the letters, and I punch my favorite parts of some cards. I don't get everything from each person's correspondence, but I end up with pieces of each documented for years to come.
