DIY Greeting Card Organizer

Keep your greeting cards grouped together and arranged in categories with this easy-to-make greeting card organizer.
Need a bigger, better, and more organized method to keep your greeting cards arranged neatly? This cheerful organizer is easy to make and will help you stay organized.
Start by using washi tape to decorate the outside of the storage container. Wrap it around three or four times to create a design and add a little personality to the box. I chose a yellow chevron pattern because I wanted my greeting card organizer to be bright, bubbly, and FUN!
When creating the tabs to divide the different occasions I used a 2 inch circle punch and various colors of glittered card stock. For the labels themselves you can make your own categories using a label maker or write them out onto self-adhesive tabs. If you are using the glittered paper I suggest applying the labels with a small amount of hot glue on the back rather than relying on the sticky adhesive. It may stick right away but after a few hours you will notice they begin to fall off. Glue will keep them in place and secure.
For the dividers I used brightly colored card stock and cut each piece down to size to fit the shape of the storage bin. Once again, I used glue to adhere the labels I made previously and attached them in a cascading pattern so I could see each category when placed inside of the box.
The outside may need a little something extra so using my leftover glittered card stock, decorative stickers, and alphabet stickers I made a colorful label to tie the whole organizer together.
Now that you have a way to keep all of your greeting cards arranged there should be no excuse to stock up throughout the year.

    How clever! I had used a priority mail box cut in half but yours is soooo much better! Plus the dividers.
