New storage system

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.

Here’s my finished box with plenty of room to add more cards ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t normally have time for such projects, so really enjoyed doing it!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!
