card keeper box from small stamp organizer

So I have to admit my handmade cards are not stored well and i never know what i have ....till now.
I used my acrylic organizer (z1028 @ $12.95) to create a card keeper box. This way I found out I only have 16 hand made cards and I need to get busy! Plus they are organized, easy to find and clean and unbent!!
