Scrapbooking has been popular for years, but Dawn Ristow has a unique way to keep your cards and pictures organized where you can always look at them.
They're called Kupboard Keepsakes.
Getting Holiday cards is always nice but then the mantle gets too cluttered or they sit in pile on the kitchen counter and you can't enjoy them through the season. Well, one Wisconsin woman is proving that necessity is truly the mother of invention.
"I was standing in the kitchen and I kept thinking that there has to be a better way to do this and it hit me -- that's when Kupboard Keepsakes came to life," says Ristow.
Here's how they work: There is a strip of ribbon with a magnet inside that holds the card.
On the back, you can attach it and adjust the strip to fit almost any cupboard or cabinet in your home. She sells different sizes. And it does help you stay organized.
"A simple way to display holiday greeting cards, photographs, children's artwork, things to do lists .... anything that you don't want to lose that sits piled up on the counter."
Dawn promises that it is so simple to use, even a child can do it. Her young daughter uses them too.
"When she comes home from preschool, she proudly displays her artwork... it's easy for her to open and click them. I don't have to deal with tapes and I don't have to deal with magnets."
