diy memories book





























now it might be just my family, but we are big on cards. we are always sending each other little postcards, or just a little card to say hi (everyone knows that receiving post is the best feeling!)

i used to pin them up around the flat, but this drove j a little crazy, and i have so many now that i was stuck with what to do with them. then, whilst scrolling through pinterest i found this idea and wondered why i hadn't thought of it sooner!

and there we have it; i grabbed my hole punch, and started punching through hundreds of cards, postcards, gig tickets, cinema tickets, and any other bits of memorabilia from the last few years. i tied some ribbon through them all, and now i have an amaze little book with gorgeous artwork as well as little snippets of my family.

  7. This is such a good idea! I am tempted to go and collect all my cards etc. and do the same!
    I always keep cards and letters, I can't understand how people can throw that sort of thing away!
