Upcycled Greeting Card Storage Box
Upcycle a floppy disk storage box to use for storing greeting cards.
Do you enjoy sending and receiving birthday cards? I do! While I appreciate any birthday wish, I’d much rather receive a birthday card in the mail than an email, text, or Facebook message.
I like to keep an assortment of greeting cards on hand so that I have them when I need them.
It’s much easier to have cards on-hand rather than shop for one every time you need one.
Because I like to craft, I put on my thinking cap to come up with a unique storage system for my stockpile of Hallmark Value Cards. A 5.5” Floppy Disk Holder ended up being the perfect card holder. To make it pretty, I decorated the sides with scrapbook paper and made a chalkboard label for the front. Now my cards are all together in a handy storage unit.
The floppy disk dividers make it easy for me to sort my cards. Funny cards are in the first section.
Sympathy cards are in the middle and other birthday cards are in the back. I put address labels and a pen in the front of the box so that I have everything that I need to write a card for a birthday.
Now that I have a selection of greeting cards ready to send, I’m more likely to actually send a card rather than thinking about it and then forgetting all about it.
This is a really cute idea to store your cards. I have a small rubbermaid tote that I store my cards in. Now, I wish I had an old floppy disk storage container! All mine have made their way to Goodwill. 🙂
It’s so great to hear that you can find good cards at such an affordable price. I always cringe a little when I see how expensive cards have gotten. I love the card storage box, too- great idea!
Great idea Paula! I place mine in ziploc bags labeled funny, birthday, etc…love your idea!
What a great idea to reuse something that has absolutely no use anymore (at least for its intended use). And it came with dividers. Now I know what to look for on our next thrifting adventure!
This is SO very cute and what a Fantastic idea. Thanks for sharing this with us!
What a great way to up-cycle!!!
Oh how I need to get organized like this!
Clever upcycle, Paula! I love greeting cards!
I knew about the value greeting cards at WalMart, but not about the rewards program! I’ll be checking that out this morning. Your storage/organizer idea is perfect. I’ve bought cards ahead only to forget where I put them!!
What a great idea Paula. I love recycling things. That box looks like it was originally made to store cards!
Love your upcycling Paula! And thanks for reminding me I really need to restock my cards for the year! I’ll have to check out the Hallmark Rewards.
Smart upcycle! XO
What a great way to store your cards! It’s not like you will use that floppy holder again for it’s intent. Had no idea about the cards.
Great idea Paula!! 🙂
Very cool Paula! Pretty way to upcycle and get organized!
What a great idea, love it!
What a brilliant way to store and sort cards!
A perfect idea, and so easy to flip through your inventory. 🙂
What a great way to upcycle an item you probably aren’t using that much anymore! Have a great week, friend!
What a great way to reuse that floppy disk container!!! Pinning, and thanks for sharing at Creativity Unleashed!
I love the idea of using the Floppy Disk Drive Container to store and organize your greeting cards. That’s so creative! Thanks for sharing. #client
