You can just buy stock cards, write in them and send them out. Not everything has to be diy

What do you mean? You are looking for something cute to do with the cards you received at your wedding?

I didn’t take a photo, but I just wrapped mine up in a pile and tied it with baker’s twine. Kinda like this invite… just a pile of cards tied in a bundle. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/225743000042314164/  I did the same with my shower cards.  I’ll probably get a little memory box from michaels to put all those little ‘keepsake’ things in. (or more likely, reuse the kate spade box that my toasting glasses came in.)

You don’t have to keep them if you don’t want to. Or just throw them all in a shoe box to go into a closet

Take them to your local framing shop and ask them to arrange them into one big frame with matting and glass. It won’t be cheap— custom framing is expensive– but it’s a good way to preserve the cards without spending a lot of time on crafting. Then you can hang it on your wall.

alysee:  This idea is DIY but it would be super easy…you could just use a hold punch to make a hole in the upper left corner of all of the cards and then tie them all together in a ribbon.  See #3 on this list:

There’s other ideas out there like make ornaments but they’re all DIY.  I haven’t actually seen a place where you can send them to make something.

alysee:  My Mother-In-Law had a bag made for us with our last name and wedding date on it. She did it for her daughter, so now it’s become a family thing. 

She purchased this one but blank and had her own person personalize it so it wasn’t just my monogram….wish it had another name than “Money Bag” – etsy seller jfyBride

Ours are currently sitting in a basket from Michael’s under a coffee table. They will probably go in a box sometime down the road and never seen again, but would like to keep them.
