    I store my cards in a small plastic file box. They are filed under catergories so I can get to the type of card quickly! I LOVE making cards!

    My system is nothing great. The cards and envelopes go in the photo storage boxes along with other stationery and store-bought cards.

    I store my cards in three canvas covered and lined boxes that have little bookplates on the front for labeling, organized by type and divided with tabbed cards. One box is reserved for family cards that I make specifically for my family and is organized by date needed. The other two boxes are general cards (wedding, sympathy, get well, birthday, etc.) for when I need them.

    What a great give-away! I display some of mine and the others are in a basket on my scraptable. :)

  10. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    The only time I make cards is when I need to give one away for some occasion, so I really don’t keep them long enough to worry about storing them!

  11. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I have my cards sorted into sets and stored in acrylic card boxes. They are easy to see and if I need a gift I can just wrap a ribbon around one, add a tag and it’s ready to go.

    Good morning… I have one of those little wood vegetable bin’s with wire mesh in the three doors.. (actually I have 2 bin’s)… anyhow, I use one cubby hole for my cards right now (11″W X 4″T X 6″ D) and the rest store ink pads, ATG tape, staplers, etc…They sit right behind me on a small bookcase. But I do plan on getting a filing system eventually… Haven’t found the right one yet…. Thank you for the chance to win the prize… Have a good week.

    My cards are stored on a shelf in my craft closet. If I ever get more organized, I would sort them and store/display them in a pretty wooden box on my writing table. I can dream…

    I, like others, keep mine in a card storage box designed for store bought cards. They’re organized by theme (birthday, sympathy, get well, etc.) I also have a photo storage box in which I store my “almost finished” cards. Cards in which I haven’t put a sentiment on it or finished the inside.

    I store my cards in a clear plastic box, separated by categories, this way they are easy to find!

    I also have a second box, clear as well, with all the materials for the cards, and my unfinished ones.

    I have a card box I got from Hallmark that I store all my cards – it has a folder for each month and folders for birthday/anniversary etc. at the back. It’s great!

    two different places. I have a card file that is one of the metal provo craft tins all decorated up. However, I quickly outgrew it so have a photo storage box full as well. I love having a large variety to go to when needed.

    These are really cool! I just ordered 2 packs but I’m sure I’ll be ordering more soon! What a fabulous idea and who would have thought that this could become a business for you. You should really open an ETSY shop and sell there as well! Anyways, as for the question about storing my cards….I have a thing that my friend’s husband made – it’s similar to a mail holder but is the size of a magazine rack and it has 3 “bins”. I altered it and hung it on my hall way wall and that is where I store my pre-made cards.

    Hi everyone… I storage my cards in a box for future use and even for other people’s use. I currently do not have as many cards ready to use as I wish, but I try to have them assorted by theme for easy grab when needed. :)

    I altered a photo box and put dividers in to separate the different occasions. Nothing real special but it works for me!

  37. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    Cool prize. I keep my cards in a basket with dividers.

  38. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I can never really keep up, so I’ve usually only got 2 or 3 ready made. I keep these out on display, but I should really put them away – when my family comes over it’s all too easy for them to say “Can I please take this card?” How can I say no? LOL

    Great give-away. I keep my cards in a box, divided into sections/categories, i.e., birthday; thinking of you, wedding, etc. When making a card for a special occasion, I always make a duplicate to file in my box. That way, I have another to use in a hurry, or for ideas. I usually scan my cards, too, and keep them on my computer in similar categories.

    Hi
    I store my card in an old napkinbox that i have altered. I dont have much card to store since i mostley just do card to relatives and give away. But it is nice to have some cards for the times i dont have time to make a card.

  46. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I’ve only just started making cards so I store them in a metal box.

  47. Deb Long

    I tie mine up as sets with ribbon or embroidery floss and give them away as hostess gifts! When I try to store them I end up forgetting about them and making new ones anyway!

  48. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    lets see…I have a store bought box stuffed full of a handmade and store bought cards, I have a basket of hand made cards and and I have a 2 gallon zip lock bag full of cards from a swap…

    Sounds like I need to reorganize!

    I have a box from an Old QVC kit. It has tabbed dividers for different categories and also for tabbed dividers for all the months. The only problem is that it doesn’t hold any cards largers than A2 size, but other than that I love it.

    i keep mine in a card box, a different box for each occasion. they were getting damaged as i kept going through them and this system seems to work the best!

    I store my cards in a little rectangular shaped wire basket I found. It’s easy to see the colorful cards and the wire basket is embellished with ribbons.

    I just started making cards so i usually send them out to friends & family before I even think about storing them. but i love to display them in those frames that you can get from martha stewart and/or michaels that you can pin your items in. that way you don’t have to mess up the card and still remove when you need to.

    I store my cards in a photo box (from Michaels) with dividers in it. I use the dividers to separate the different kinds of cards I make.

    I have a fabric covered box that is divided in the middle. It has little dividers by occasion (birthday boy, love, sympathy) and dividers for each month. I store my cards and swap cards in it. Very handy when you have a last minute little kid b-day party to just pull one out.

  63. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I have 3 photo storage boxes that I use to store my finished cards in. I use dividers that say things like “Birthday – Male”, “Birthday – Female”, “Thank You”, “Anniversary”, etc. on them to organize the cards by occasion.

    I have a box that use to house a card kit that I bought on QVC. It already had dividers for each card subject area and Iuse that to sort and file my cards.

  69. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I make quilling cards… must say I’m very bad about storing them though… they just live in the same box as all my quilling papers… maybe that’s why I don’t use them as much as I should! hehehe :)

  70. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I use a large photo album to store my cards. I use the type that has full pages with the plastic celophane that you lift up. The page is sticky underneath so I just stick them. It works great and they are still kind of on display. Visitors to my house generally cannot help themselves but to look through my albums and scrapbooks.

    I put mine in a plastic box. I don’t usually make many more than needed anyway.

    I have some of my favorites stored in photo albums. I can slide them in and out of the sleeeves. I also store some of them in photo boxes. That wasy i can pill them out and change them till I like them.

  74. Posted 5 years, 8 months ago | Permalink

    I haven’t really started making cards but I love to try making one soon. If ever i make some, i will store it in an altered box and put tabs to identify what type or for what occasion the cards are.

    I really love making cards since they are fairly quick and small, and quite practical since everyone needs cards to send for every occasion, give away as gifts, etc. I try to store mine in a plastic shoe box size container/CD/photo media storage type, by holiday, other theme, family, etc. Have met lots of great people and made many lasting friendships over cardmaking.

    I store my cards (I don’t have that many yet) in a really cute pink foldup box I found. It came with file folders, and I keep the cards in order. If I make a lot more, I will have to find a different solution.

    I put my cards in individual clear sleeves and then toss in a basket on my desk, so when I am sitting down to write out cards and notes, they are right there for me to peruse and choose just the right card.
