I noticed that the shorter edge of the card was the same width as the shorter tabs, and the length of the cards were the same as the longer tabs.
This seemed like a wonderful way to recycle the cards.
With the subject written on the card before I trimmed, I was able to use five or six the shorter width, and 4 the longer width.
They are stiffer than paper, and if you are going to recycle them anyway, why not use them a second time!

This is a great idea! I need to redo one of our files and this will be fun!

I took frame that I bought at Dollar store already had matting I just cut scrapbook paper for background of business card. I took business card and centered it and adhered self adhesive corners so I could put in card without ruining it. After I did that the beige matting looked plain so I took scrapbook letters to spell out the info on card. You can do this with current business card or postcards and with the tons of scrapbooking items out there there always something that compliments the item.

This is such a clever way to display family memories. Thanks for sharing your unique idea. I don't have any old cards from family members but I'm going to look for other memorabilia and try to do something like you did; in a frame.
I had some leftover print-it-yourself business card forms and found out that they make homemade gift cards in a pinch!
