a good weekend to diy...

i have so many cards and pictures and memories
just stuffed in boxes....
i love this idea to turn them into a "rolodex scrapbook"
....using vintage cards
and photos
....and bits of this and that
so that all that goodness that's just hiding away
could be at your fingertips

step-by-steps here

This idea is heart touching. I used to do this for my friends and family members on every special occasion. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post, I like such works and I am sure this will help me in my further work.

I love this idea. I never get around to scrapbooking; I'm too intimidated by the whole big page. But I think even I could do these! Thanks!

I just saw this on craftgawker and I love the idea. I think this would be an especially cool thing to make as a meaningful present for someone, maybe a preteen or teen. Words of love & encouragement. Plus it's so easy to make! Jotting this one down on my ever-expanding list of things to make :)

I love this idea! Think I will make one for my 10 yr old granddaughter. Fill with pictures, momentoes and words of encouragement. Super cool. Thanks for the idea. I pinned this on Pinterest.

You can buy the tiny tool that punches the rolodex holes at office supply stores. That way you can punch the item directly, instead of attaching to the blank rolodex card.

the "step-by-steps" link didn't work- it took me to a blank "Fossil" page...?

This is SUCH a cool idea!!
I love these organisers, but never get to buy one just because I feel i dont NEED it, but this idea is SO neat!
The idea of having this on your desk and flipping through your memories when you feel like it... brilliant!
