I have had them on display, since Christmas

I don't want to throw them away because they're so beautiful!  

So here is what I did with my Christmas cards.

I made a simple book.

Christmas card book, hole punch, sharpie, book ring

I used our Christmas cards, 
a book ring*, 
a hole punch and 
a 5x7 piece of white cardstock that I wrote on with a sharpie.
I did also stamp a little image at the bottom.

I punched holes in the right top corner of the cover and 
each card with a standard hole punch*.
