Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #12 - Rolodex

When Maria challenged us this week to alter a rolodex or index card, I began thinking of some way to use the rolodex cards for something a little different. Well, I have a friend whose son is getting married this summer and I decided that his bride might find it handy to have at her fingertips the birthdays of all the members of her new extended family.

I have put names and birthdays on the fronts and mailing addresses on the backs of the cards. Maybe by the time the wedding arrives, I will have all the cards made and dividers for the 12 months of the year!!

I think I'm off to a good start!!
