I fell in love with the beautiful address card sets at Lovely Designs (see Resources below) in 2006, but she was no longer making them. Not to be thwarted, I made my own set last April using scrapbook paper found at Jo-Ann's and a wood Rolodex box I already owned.
Each address card was made by tracing one of the originals on scrapbook paper and cutting them out. The Roledex card hole-punch tool at the office supply store didn’t fit the track rods in the box, so I cut out the little slots myself. This was a tad time-consuming but, when you want something, you find a way.
I used my computer to print out all the important name/address/phone numbers that feature in our lives on blank address labels and stuck those on the cards.
Although I loved my project, the old divider tabs weren’t making me happy. Yesterday I made new ones and added alphabet stickers.
Total project cost $4.99 (I already had everything except the paper and stickers).
There are all kinds of fancy Rolodex file versions; I just wanted something relatively simple. However, here are some resources for either purchasing or making your own (most are sold out right now, but you can see the variations being created):
