Over the holidays I decided I wanted to sort my Postcrossing cardsย into countries and also make a bigger box for them.

I re-used a shoe box that had already been re-used once to wrap one of my Christmas presents.

I made dividers from coloured card and labeled them with the postcrossing codes for each country.
