One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is receiving cards from my friends and family in the mail. I love to see how children have grown and keep in the loop with what people have done throughout the year. In a world of social media and digital photography, there is something special about receiving an actual print these days. For years I have taped the cards and photos I've received on a door, entry way or even a staircase. But if you're looking for a fun and different way to display these cards I have an idea for you...
*Thanks to my dear friend Cathleen Drago for the great idea!
- Festive holiday ribbon of your choice (20+ feet)
- Mini craft clothes pins (I found mine at Joann Fabric)
- Depending on where you decide to display your cards (kitchen cabinets, cupboards, etc.) the amount of ribbon you'll need will differ - for my cupboard I used about 20 feet of ribbon.
- A stapler
- Holiday cards
Tie your ribbon around the door you are using for your display, and fasten ribbon together on the back side of the door using a stapler (cut excess ribbon).
I used two staples in the center where the ribbon meets, but I also added tape to the top and bottom to keep the ribbon from moving at all...
Use your clothes pins to fasten your cards to the ribbon. I alternated cards going down the ribbon...
That's it! You're done and you have a fun new way to display your holiday cards!
