Style Watch: How to Organize Your Stationery - Damask Love. I have more cards than I could possible send in twelve lifetimes.

Style Watch: How to Organize Your Stationery - Damask Love

In the craftroom, I have a box that I call “Hallmark.” It’s overflowing with handmade cards that I’ve created over the years and whenever friends come over, I tell them to go shopping at “Hallmark” and pick out some cards for their own stash. It’s a great way to pare down my collection and send them off to a good home. With so much stationery around here, I’ve long wanted to come up with a creative and simple way to keep it organized…a system for categorizing some of my cards, making it easier to find them and actually put them to use (instead of letting them pile up).

My husband thinks it’s a shameful way to treat perfectly good books, but I haven’t seen him actually trying to read any of the books I have brought home! A couple of months ago I saw my first book birdhouse, and I was smitten. I couldn’t figure out how it was created by just looking at it, so I began an Internet search! …and I promised instructions were forthcoming! First you need an old book, minus the cover. Fold the first page in half toward the spine.

Then fold the top corner down to meet the spine, making a triangle. On the second page, fold the bottom corner in to meet the spine, making a triangle. Then fold the top corner in to meet the spine. The other two birdhouses are slightly different. Then fold the bottom corner in to meet the spine. Confession: My husband may have a bit of a point. DIY Book Mobile Art.
