Hanging up your birthday cards using twine or any string-like item you can find around the house is super easy. You can use small paper clips, pins, or even double sided tape to attach each card to the string! You can hang this up in your bedroom, office, or even the living room. This look is super trendy and is often featured in many home décor magazines.

Creating a collage out of different cards is a really fun arts and crafts project! Take your favourite cards and cut around them in different shapes. You can also cut out the special words written by some of the closest people in your life and use them in your collage as well. When you’ve got a pile of cut outs simple glue them to a sheet of paper and frame it. A perfect idea for your children’s bedrooms!

Purchase an album big enough to fit different sized cards and start assembling. Feel free to have fun with the way in which you organize your album. This is a great way to keep the memories of your birthday’s and special occasions alive.
