How to Organize All Those Rewards Cards

I have a love-hate relationship with reward cards.  Every business under the sun offers some form of a rewards card as an incentive to attract repeat customers.  Sure, I love redeeming points for free perks as much as the next gal but what I don’t love is having to lug all those frequent buyer cards around! My cards had a temporary home in an old sunglass case inside my glove compartment of my car. I wanted to create some place more permanent for them so I threw together a fun and bright tin can organizer. This is a really easy craft and can be personalized in so many ways!


Tin Can {I used a gift certificate tin

 can purchased from Michael's}

Sheet of patterned paper

Decorative stickers




Glue Gun

Mod Podge

1. Take the lid of your tin can and trace around it on the back of your paper.
2. Cut out the traced design and then set it on top of your lid to see if you need to trim off any excess paper.
3. Now take your stickers and start decorating the paper. I thought it would be cute to spell out “Shop ‘til you drop” on mine.
4. Once you have your stickers in place take your sponge and brush a little Modge Podge on the top of the tin lid.  Lay your decorated paper down on top of the glue and continue to brush more Mod Podge over the paper and stickers. Let it dry for 15 minutes and then repeat. You may have to repeat this step
    2-3 times depending on how well your stickers and paper adheres to the tin lid.

    What? You didn't notice I listed a dog ball as one of the materials you needed in order to complete this project? Apparently, someone was trying to get her message across.  I step away for one minute and I come back to see my ball-obsessed dog had neatly placed her toy amongst my project. She'll be starting her new blog soon.

5. Now for the finale! Take your glue gun and start adhering your ribbon around the sides of the tin lid.

  Easy peasy, right? Now all you have to do is take all those darn reward cards out of your wallet and toss them into their happy new home!

I’d love to know how do you organize all your rewards cards?

Too cute! Great Idea. I keep all of mine in a Vera Bradley business card holder; however, I am starting to transfer all of mine to an app on my phone. I love these gift card tins because you can do so much with them.

Really cute idea! I despise all of those reward cards as well, but they seem to be a necessity (especially at the grocery stores here...)

Cute! I put mine on a key ring, with no keys. Not to creative, but it keeps them from getting lost.
