How to Create Easy Greeting Card Storage

March 1, 2013

If you’re anything like me, you buy greeting cards for birthdays or some other life event, put them up, forget you have them, buy more, find the old ones, forget about them again, buy more again, etc. It’s a never-ending cycle. I’ve had a birthday card for my step-mother for three years! Not to mention all of the blank cards I have stashed here and there that I can never seem to find when I need them.

I think it’s finally time to corral all of those greeting cards once and for all. I found a basket at the Dollar Tree that was the perfect size for this project. I had the rest of the supplies on hand, which makes this little project come up to a grand total of $1.



  • Basket
  • Card Stock
  • Divider Tabs (I used Martha Stewart’s found at Staples)
  • Paper Trimmer or Scissors
  • Label Maker (or you could write on the  tabs)


That’s all I needed to finally contain the card chaos!

All I did was cut the card stock to size with my paper trimmer so that it would fit in the basket. Then I attached the divider tabs on the top of each piece of card stock. From there, it was as simple as printing a label and attaching it to the divider tab.


Voila! Easy-peasy card storage.

I am so happy to finally have all of my greeting cards in one location. From now on, I’ll know exactly what cards I have and where to find them. I just love easy storage solutions.
