So the past couple of years, the Christmas cards that we've gotten have ended up in a stack on the coffee table or somewhere during the Christmas season. What a terrible way to display them when people spend so much time putting them together and mailing them out.
I saw a pin on pinterest several months ago and just couldn't resist making it this year. A great way to showcase all the awesome cards from the people we love the most! The original post was just to use it as a decoration to hang it on the wall, but I thought it was a great idea to pin cards to.
First you will need: a foam board, I got mine from good ol' Wal-Mart, 3/4 of a yard of any material that floats your boat, hot glue & gun, ribbon or rafia to hang it with & push pins.
I glued one end down and then pulled the other end as tight as possible and glued it down. Then I folded to corners down like I was wrapping a present so the material wouldn't bunch up. Then glued one side down and stretched and glued the other side, making the material fit tight around the foam board.
I had some rafia, so I glued that to the back of the board. Make sure you glue it well so it doesn't pull off when you hang it on the wall.
I also had some extra ornaments that I bought at the Dollar Tree last year for a pinterest project that was a major fail. Just a little extra something.
And voila! A cute card holder that I can pin all our Christmas cards to. It's hanging in our living room for everyone to see!
I am really surprised that I actually love how it turned out. That never happens when I get crafty!
Now, we just need more Christmas cards...
