I’m planning on putting them in a scrapbook.  I have other scrapbooks of letters and cards (and separate ones for wedding invites–because I’m crazy?)  You don’t need to split the cards in half, just get a scrapbook that doesn’t involve the plastic sleeves.  Then use photo corners or acid free tape or something to stick the back of the card into the album.

our box of cards is sitting in our living room under the coffee table still….
I’m the same. I want to keep them but have no idea how to do this!

Mine are going to be stored in the cardbox with some other keepsakes.  I got one of those “perfect card boxs” that has 4 photo frames.  I’ll put some wedding pictures in the frames and keep it on display.

i’m in the process of hand-binding ours.  In the end, it will be like a little book we can put on our shelf; you can open it up and flip through each card like a page in a book.

I saw someone make a “book” out of all their cards – I think it was cards saved from a baby’s arrival, but it was cute.  A chipboard book, bound by a ring at the top with ribbons and a few scrapbooking embelishments  Cute cute!

I took a class on handbinding (basically stitching paper together), but here’s a link with detailed instructions on how to do it.  It’s take a little bit to get the technique down, but it’s not very hard to master after a little practice.  The covers are two collages of wedding photos that I mounted onto hard covers.  This is the second book I’ve made out of old cards, and so far it is turning out really well.
