Christmas Card Display

Last year I ran into the problem of having Christmas cards that I wanted to display but didn't have a good home for.  This year, I decided to change that by using some ribbon and the utility closet door in our dining room :).  I went to Michaels and picked out 2 different designs of ribbon - one that was really wide (the striped) and one that was thinner (the see-through red).  I then purchased enough to cover the height of my door twice (if you look closely, I should've bought an extra spool of the thinner ribbon because I ran out).  I also purchased little baby clothes pins to use to hold the cards to the ribbon.  I layered 1 long piece of the striped ribbon in back of the thinner, red ribbon so that I could attach the cards to the thinner ribbon.  I used push pins to hold the ribbon into place and viola!  I ended up with a fun, festive way to practically show off my Christmas cards year after year!

a closer look:

I fully intend on bagging these supplies up and pulling them out year after year to showcase my Christmas cards!


  1. that is a GREAT idea! I never know where to put my cards either, and Philip hates it when I stick them on our fridge. I may steal this idea!

  2. i totally just stole this idea. except mine involved lots of hot glue. hope you're having fun in the big city!

  3. I'm totally stealing this idea! I've been trying to figure out what to do with our Christmas cards. Right now some are on the fridge but I'm running out of room! Thanks for the idea!

  4. I was just saying to Seth that I wish we had a really good way to display cards! Great idea...and I'm stealing it. :)

    I MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!


I love to hear your thoughts - leave me some loving!
