** This Giveaway is Now Closed **

Today’s prize is sponsored by ShortCuts. Launched in June of 2008, the sister site to SheetLoad of Cards, ShortCuts is dedicated to making your papercrafting quicker and easier.  Everybody likes a short cut every now and then!

The first ShortCuts product, which was made available for purchase July 1, is Gift Card Holder Folders (GCHF). (See photo shown.)  These ready-to-assemble-and-decorate crafting blanks will help you create a fantastic gift card holder and a variety of other creations, as seen in the Artist Samples on the ShortCuts blog.

The prize up for grabs today is a:

GCHF Assorted Color – Large Pack

You will receive 10 blanks in each of the colors shown at left (white, cream, kraft & black) – that means a total of 40 cards to decorate as you please.

For your chance to win this giveaway, please comment to this post and tell us how you store your finished cards (if you make them).  Do you have them in a box, in a drawer, or out on display?  I have mine in a metal file box.  When I need a card, it’s nice to be able to flip through and choose just the right one.  It’s like my own little shop!  Would love to hear your ideas for storing handmade cards.  We will leave comments open until Friday night Aug 1st at midnight EST.  A winner will be selected via an online number generator and announced on Saturday, Aug 2nd.

    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 have one of the 4 drawer white cube things that you make yourself and I store them in there… they are the PERFECT size for the cards and it works great!

    My system is a smallish cardboard box with cut down file folders as dividers for different categories.

    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.

    I store mine in a tabbed box by event, — all the extras I keep in another box with a flip top – but I’m running out of room!

    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.

    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 :)

    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 keep mine sort of ‘on display’ in a basket in my studio, and like to ruffle through them when I need to choose a card to send! Thanks for asking 😀

    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.

    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.

    I picked up a nifty tin at a thrift sale and gussied it up for my cards. Nothing original but I’m happy to have all my greetings in one place!

    I have a counter display unit (li’l cardboard thing) like they have at craft fairs n stuff – it sits on a shelf in my scrap room & is always full! LOL. I only keep my favourites & the rest I package as gifts etc.
    Love these gift card folder holders – what a fab idea!

    I store mine in a drawer in my paper cart. I usually don’t have too many stored at once because I tend to wait till the last minute to make them! Oops.
