Greeting card organisers are a great way to keep track of greeting cards you have, as well as the proper dates and occasions for which to use them. Making your own greeting card organiser can be easy, and a fun way to make a personalised organizational tool. Now you will have a place to store all of your greeting cards, while keeping them clean and unbent.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 1 1/2-inch three-ring binder
  • 6 double-sided folders (with three hole punches on side)
  • Permanent marker

  1. 1

    Purchase a 1 1/2-inch thick three-ring binder in the colour of your choice. Also purchase six plain double-sided folders with three-hole punches on one side to fit in your three-ring binder. You can find these supplies at office supply stores.

  2. 2

    Label the front and back side of each folder using a permanent marker with a month of the year going in consecutive order. For example, you'll start with the front side of one folder and write "January" on it, then "February" on the back and continuing in that order with the rest of the folders.

  3. 3

    Make two lists labelled "Birthdays" and "Special Occasions" starting with the folder side labelled "January" and repeat this step with each side of your folders for each month.

  4. 4

    Write down the name and date of any person whose birthday you wish to keep track of on each folder under the "Birthdays" list, for the month they were born.

  5. 5

    Write down any holidays on each month's folder that you want to remember. For example, the back of the sixth folder will be "December" and you can write in "Christmas" or "New Year's Eve."

  6. 6

    Add any decorations you wish to each side of your folder. For example, for the folder side labelled "October" you could decorate it with Halloween symbols, such as pumpkins, ghosts or bats.

  7. 7

    Put all of your folders into your three-ring binder going in the order of the months, with the first folder being the "January / February" and the last one being the "November / December" folder.

  8. 8

    Label the front of your binder "Greeting Card Organizer" and add any decorations you would like. Place cards in the binder based on the occasion or person to whom you want to send them. For example, if your mother has an August birthday and you have a card saved for her, put it in the sleeve of the folder side that is labelled "August."
