I have some very old cards from my school days and all from family, friends etc. Don't know how to keep them in a novel way. Something, my family could cherish in the years to come. Any ideas?

You could scrap them - slip them in little cellophane holders to preserve the cards without adhering them to the page.

I actually made a book for cards that I want to keep.

I took 2 heavy duty pieces of chipboard and cut them to just a bit bigger than my largest card.

Then I decorated it with papers and ink and embellies.

Punched 2 holes it the chip and in the cards and put them on a couple of binder rings.

I've only made one so far for Christmas cards (and not every single card is a keeper!), but I want to make a couple more for birthdays anniversaries etc.

I was going to suggest what Kim said I saved all my wedding cards (11 years ago) and saw this idea on Pinterest awhile back. I just need to decorate the chipboard and start punching some holes!
